Family Service League relocates HQ to Bloomfield

Family Service League, a nonprofit that aims to help strengthen and support families in need, announced on Tuesday it has moved its headquarters to a new space in Bloomfield.

The organization was previously located at the historic United Way building at 60 S. Fullerton Ave. in Montclair.

The new office at 440 Franklin St., Suite 200, will provide a space to grow into as its staff develops new programs and offerings, it said.

“In 2019 alone, we provided a total of 3,939 counseling sessions to individuals, couples and families in need of help,” Larry Slous, president of Family Service League’s board of trustees, said. “Although we are sad to leave Montclair, our new headquarters will better serve the current needs of all of our communities.”

The new headquarters will have the capacity to house all of the nonprofit’s employees as well as additional space for counseling.

“Our new location will be easily accessible, with direct access to public transportation. Our location directly across from Bloomfield College will allow us to better serve students,” Christine Ferro-Saxon, executive director of Family Service League, said. “As a nonprofit organization, it was important to invest in a space that helps our staff thrive as they serve the public. We are looking forward to welcoming the Essex County community into our new home.”

FLS said it also partners with interns at various colleges and universities in the state to provide training for therapists, including Kean, Seton Hall, Montclair State and Columbia University.
