Dept. of Family and Community Services provides numerous resources for families

Mornings

The Department of Family and Community Services provides quality health and social services, housing, recreation, and education to improve the quality of life for the entire Albuquerque Community.

Some of those services include early childhood education, community centers, senior programming, substance abuse help, and much more.

Director of Family and Community Services, Carol Pierce discusses those services and how the department assists families. Pierce says for the first time, parents can register their children online for summer programs which previously required you to visit in-person onsite.

It is estimated that about 4,000 youths will take part in these programs. New sites on the westside of Albuquerque are also growing in order to accommodate all.
