Greenleaf Family Center is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) family service organization that has served communities since 1912. Beginning as the Charity Organization Society of Akron, Greenleaf opened under the auspices of Goodyear founder F. A. Seiberling and Firestone founder Harvey Firestone. The original mission of over 100 years ago continues today as Greenleaf Family Center endeavors to strengthen families in our community through counseling, education, and support.
Greenleaf Family Center serves nearly 10,000 individuals annually. Services include Individual, Family and Group Counseling, Tri-County Employee Assistance Program, Educational Programs, Community Services for & of the Deaf, At-Risk Youth, as well as, School-Based Programming.
The agency is accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA), certified by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OHMHAS) as an outpatient mental health facility, as well as, licensed to operate an Alcohol and Drug Prevention Program, and is a member of the Ohio Council of Behavioral Health and Family Services Providers.
Greenleaf’s programs are available for all residents of Summit County, with the majority in the Greater Akron Area. Community Services for & of the Deaf are available to any deaf or hard of hearing person and their families in Summit, Portage, Medina, Wayne and Holmes counties. Although our services are available to all residents, the majority of the clientele are of lower socioeconomic status.
GFC believes that individuals and families are best served in a collaborative and client focused service environment that focuses on strengths and reciprocity. Client engagement is the foundation on which services are provided at GFC.
