The Bergen Family Center
Why Families Matter:
Families make up the fabric of our community. When we support and nurture individual family members we are able to make our community stronger. A stronger community creates a better place to live. We provide assistance at every stage of a family’s life journey.
Whether it’s providing parents a place for their kids to spend their day or a place for older adults to spend their mornings, Bergen Family Center is there to help.
The ZONE at Dwight Morrow High School and Janis Dismus Middle School builds on the strength of young people and assists them in achieving their education and life goals. The ZONE provides comprehensive culturally competent mental health and prevention services in a safe and affirming environment.

From its founding in 1898, as an organization of boys clubs, Bergen Family Center has developed into the county’s oldest operating family service agency.
The Woman’s Club of Englewood, which started the boys organization added a day nursery in 1900 which launched a total family-supportive mission. For the next several decades the agency operated under a number of different names and in varied locations, becoming the social Service Federation in the 1920’s.
