Covid-19 has had a significant impact on our mental health this year. According to a recent survey by the NYS Office of Mental Health, 70% of individuals have had an increase in anxiety, stress and related symptoms due to the impact of the pandemic ranging from loss of job to changes in education. Family Services’ eight Behavioral Health Centers throughout Dutchess and Ulster Counties were a source of in person and telehealth support for nearly 5800 individuals in 2020, a year of crisis.

A Look Back
Thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity this holiday season. You helped ensure our services remain available by contributing to our Giving Tuesday and End of Year Fundraising Appeal. You also helped make the holidays brighter for children and families throughout the Hudson Valley by providing toys, clothing, and food for those in need. The happy faces behind the masks below belong to youth in our After the Bell Program who received sports jerseys for the holidays from our friends at Family Ball Park Memories.
Save the Date for Family Services’ Virtual “Share Your Heart” Auction opening February 1st to benefit Youth Services Programming. These are tough times for children in our community – so many activities are cancelled, remote learning can be a challenge, and youth miss being with their friends. When you support the “Share Your Heart” Auction, you help provide a safe space for youth at the Family Partnership Center where they can develop their academic, athletic, creative, workforce and social skills. Stay up to date on available auction items by visiting the auction page of our website here.
If you would like to contribute an item to the “Share Your Heart” Auction, please contact Development@familyservicesny.org.
