Family of Woodstock Inc. is a network of individuals, paid and volunteer, whose mission is to provide confidential and fully accessible crisis intervention, information, prevention, and support services. The Agency, which sponsors multiple human service programs throughout Ulster County, was founded in 1970. Family's principle focuses are crisis intervention services -- Family runs one of the oldest continuously operating 24-hour-a-day emergency switchboard in the country, which is county-wide and toll free; and walk-in centers in Woodstock, New Paltz, Ellenville and Kingston -- emergency shelter and food programs -- Family House, a 14-bed runaway and homeless youth facility; the Darmstadt Shelter, a 19-bed shelter for men and women, primarily in recovery; the Family Inn, a 27-bed shelter for homeless families; the Family Shelter, a 17-bed domestic violence shelter; and MidWay, two supervised living program sites for homeless adolescents -- dependent care programs -- Child Care Councils of Ulster and Columbia/Greene Counties; and Child Care Subsidy Administration for Columbia Counties -- and case management services to such discreet populations as substance abusers, individuals at the Ulster County Jail, homeless individuals and families, victims of domestic violence, as well as the general public. The agency provides non-residential services to victims of domestic violence through an advocate at the Family Court and to men having a problem with violence through the Evolve program; and supervised visits authorized by the Family Court for non-custodial parents. Family is also a lead agency in the development of HIV/AIDS services. The agency is also helping to lead the effort to expand strength-based and prevention programs which grow healthier individuals and communities and is providing leadership in the effort to create affordable housing. The goal of Family's programs is to assist people to achieve self-sufficiency and self-respect.
