G. A. Family Services was founded in 1886 as the G.A. Home for Children to serve the children of Swedish immigrants who lost their lives in the trek to America. As the years passed and the needs of the community changed, services available to youth with special needs changed as well.
Growth – All youth will be given the opportunity to reach their full potential.
Achievement – All youth will experience a positive environment in which they can enjoy success.
Family – We will work with the entire family moving all members towards permanence.
Safety – We will treat youth, families, and each other with dignity and respect, creating a safe environment for everyone.
