The Chicago Department of Family & Support Services (DFSS) is dedicated to supporting a continuum of coordinated services to enhance the lives of Chicago residents, particularly those most in need, from birth through the senior years. The department works to promote the independence and well-being of individuals, support families and strengthen neighborhoods by providing direct assistance and administering resources to a network of community-based organizations, social service providers and institutions.
DFSS offers direct services and referrals for specialized assistance to residents and families in need through its six Community Service Centers. The DFSS Division on Domestic Violence is dedicated to promoting a coordinated multi-system response to domestic violence in Chicago. And the department’s Senior Services Area Agency on Aging administers a variety of informational and recreational programs through our Regional and Satellite Senior Centers, designed to address the diverse needs and interests of older Chicagoans, from those who are healthy and active, to those who are frail and homebound.
