Mission Statement

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 to address the needs of individuals and families. The scope of the agency’s vision allows us to bring to bear resources to address a broad spectrum of human problems.

We believe that the common ground which unites us, both helper and helped, is greater than the differences which divide us, and that everyone deserves the respect and support of our larger community. We seek to embody and model the qualities of caring and respect within our organization and with those whom we serve. We maintain an attitude which is non-judgmental and non-directive, so that all individuals are encouraged to resolve problems in a way that honors their own cultural, religious, socio-economic and value systems. We endeavor to empower each person to find their own solutions to the challenges before them. In this work, we are committed to search all avenues for assistance, creatively combining resources, as needed. In addition to assisting individuals, we continually seek to improve the quality of life in our community by addressing gaps in services and by advocating for more comprehensive, effective, culturally appropriate and humane responses to people’s needs.
