The organization provides family-focused intervention and prevention programming to families in Grant, Huntington, Adams and Wells counties, according to the bank, “to strengthen the community by empowering families and youth through services that educate and inspire.”

 Funding from the $1.08 billion First Bank of Berne will allow Family Centered Services to continue its current services while developing new programs.
