In an effort to decrease costs and expand human services in Monroe County, Catholic Family Center has consolidated its services with Family Service of Rochester Inc.
The announcement was made by the two human-service agencies in late October. Together, they serve more than 75,000 people a year. With the exception of FSR’s enriched-housing programs, which provide supportive living environments, CFC will integrate FSR services into its existing operations. Such services include community-based mental-health and chemical-dependency services; programs for the elderly; and various other services for women and children.
In a statement, Carolyn Portanova, CFC’s president and chief executive officer, called the consolidation a “win for our community.”
“CFC and FSR share a long history of caring for those in need in the Rochester community that has helped shape the course of human services here,” she said. “We continue to share a commitment to developing innovative approaches to delivering high quality, cost-effective services.”
