Founded in 1882, Family Matters of Greater Washington (FMGW) is one of the oldest, nationally accredited social service organizations in the Washington metropolitan area and has maintained its leadership and reputation of excellence. Family Matters has been serving as the role of “family” to our community’s most vulnerable citizens. Through our services, we have been helping to provide a support system for those that need it most at any stage of life.
Today, Family Matters provides assistance that impacts more than 12,000 children, youth, families and seniors each year. Our spectrum of programs include: therapeutic and traditional foster care; youth development programs; mental health/counseling services; and services and activities for seniors.
Family Matters of Greater Washington is accredited by the Council of Accreditation of Services for Families and Children, Inc. Our organization is one of the founders of two nationally recognized organizations advocating for the rights of families and children: The Child Welfare League of America and the Alliance for Children and Families (formerly Family Service America).
FMGW is a member of the Consortium for Child Welfare, The DC Behavioral Health Association, and the United Way of the National Capital Area.
We are a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit for your tax and donation purposes.
Family Matters participates in both Combined Federal Campaign (#52358) and United Way (#8093).
