The first step in getting help from the DePaul Family and Community Services is to call (773) 325-7780 Monday thru Friday between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and speak to an intake worker.  On the phone, the intake worker will determine whether your family is eligible for services and will schedule an in-person appointment with you (evening appointments are available).

In the first (intake) session, you will learn how DePaul FCS operates and about services that may be of help to your family.  You will be asked to describe the things that concern you about yourself or your family.  Because DePaul FCS is a state-funded agency, your services may be subsidized.  As a result, all families are asked to provide verification of family income at the intake session.  After learning about DePaul FCS, you and the intake worker will decide together if DePaul FCS is the best place for your family to get help.​
