Concord Family Services, Inc.
1221 Bedford Avenue
Concord Family Services is a culturally sensitive community based agency providing a wide range of family services and youth/community development programs to the Bedford Stuyvesant Community of Central Brooklyn. Concord emanated out of the Concord Baptist church of Christ, Inc., founded in 1847 and is one of the oldest and largest African-American churches in the country. The agency was incorporated on January 1st, 1990 in response to a community need for comprehensive social, case management and support services directed to foster care children and their families. Its original mission was to rebuild the Bedford Stuyvesant Community through provision of family, foster care and adoption services that would strength the community and family unit fostering self-sufficiency and preventing re-entry of children into the foster care system.
