In 1959, members of the Lenawee County Ministerial Association and Associated Charities collaborated with other civic-minded individuals on the need for a counseling service. On July 5, 1961, Family Counseling and Children's Services opened its doors to the public providing counseling to residents of Lenawee County.
Family Counseling and Children's Services became a member of the Lenawee County United Way in 1962 and adopted the Catherine Cobb Domestic Violence Shelter in 1990.
Family Counseling and Children's Services is a member of the Michigan Federation of Child and Family Services, Child and Family Services of Michigan, and has been accredited by the Council on Accreditation since 1990.
