The Centers for Families and Children, now affiliated with Circle Health Services, is one of the oldest and largest nonprofit human service organizations in Northeast Ohio. Its mission is to strengthen the community by providing individuals and families with life-changing solutions to lead healthier and more successful lives.
With 17 locations across Cuyahoga County, The Centers offers integrated behavioral health care, early learning programs and job training and assistance programs. It began as The Center for Human Services in 1970 as the result of five agencies (Family Service Association, the Day Nursery Association, Traveler’s Aid Society, Cleveland Homemaker Service Association and Youth Service) coming together to integrate their services. In 1993, it changed its name to The Center for Families and Children to better reflect its core work and integrated service model. In 2011, West Side Ecumenical Ministries (WSEM) and El Barrio joined forces with the organization, adding an “s” to The Center name.
