The idea of FACES was conceived in 1988. Working first in the Superior Court with divorcing families, the visionaries saw first hand a need for more services than a two hour mediation visit. The families they worked with were angry, lonely, worried about their children. They often had little community resources to send families to after mediation. They observed how children were shuffled back and forth, experiencing parents with problems. The women knew that these traumatic experiences may endure throughout their lifetime. 


So, these founders envisioned a place where children and parents would have easy access to affordable counseling. These parents would learn how to strengthen their reconfigured families. The founders got to work. 

Mary O'Connor, MFT and fellow single parent, along with co-founders Shelley Driscoll and Cheryl Ramirez, pooled their resources and invited other community members to get involved to begin a journey that has led to thousands of families that have received help and healing for over two decades. Our community spirit has encouraged hundreds of volunteers to contribute time and donations to the agency.
