  • Annual Dinner

At our 2015 Annual Dinner, Judge Eddie Elum regaled us with stories from the history of the Family Living Center.  Judge Elum was a key personality in the founding of the FLC in 1993 and continues to be a strong supporter today.  We are grateful to him beyond words for his invaluable contribution over the years!  Also honored was Dr. Greg Feczko who was another partner in the birth of the FLC.  Now retired, Dr. Feczko volunteers there, offering his handyman skills to keep things running smoothly.  A plaque and a jacket bearing the title of “Dr. Fix-It” was bestowed upon him for his service as the Master of Plaster, the Saint of Paint, the Mayor of Repair, the King of the Wax Ring.  Thank you, gentlemen, for your generosity toward the agency and our community!




A huge THANK YOU to Mr. David Baker, President of the Pro Football Hall of Fame for speaking words of appreciation over us at our 2014 Annual Dinner! Mr. Baker expressed the value of character in the game of football, but most importantly, in the bigger picture of life and the people we serve daily as we carry out our mission of HOPE to our community.  We congratulate and THANK volunteer extraordinaire Joan Tomec who received special recognition for her years of selfless service at the Family Living Center!! Joan digs in the dirt, shovels snow, loves on our residents, and gives of herself in a most amazing way. Thank you, Joan, you have blessed many!


Our 2013 Annual Dinner Meeting was celebrated on May 21 at La Pizzaria Restaurant.  Speaker Jim Tressel affirmed our mission of Giving Hope in his motivational speech, reminding us of the importance of serving in a selfless manner.  View our 2012 Annual Report here.


The 2012 Annual Dinner featured speaker, Lisa Ryan, who focused on the value of gratitude in business and in life. The topic was very well received, especially given the good fortune we experienced as an agency in the prior year. Learn more about Lisa at


The 2011 Annual Dinner featured speaker, Taylor R. Pressler, BA, MA, Research Coordinator for the Center for IT Innovations in Healthcare at the Ohio State University Medical Center. Taylor shared an emotional speech about how the Family Living Center helped her find direction in her life at a time when she was most vulnerable. Read Taylor’s story in the Massillon Independent.

The Community Classic is a special event fund-raiser with a multiple purpose. It serves as a gathering place for our concerned community and business leaders. It is an opportunity to enhance our community through participation in a fun yet significant special event.

What is Impact 1 Hundred?
Impact1Hundred is a Women’s Giving Circle of Community Services of Stark County Inc. The purpose of the group is to promote philanthropy and engage women in the charitable opportunities of the community. Also, we strive to raise awareness and lead members to become involved with a charity in a more personal way.


The concept of Impact1Hundred is simple. Annual donations of members are combined to award one large grant to fund a program or programs of Community Services. The group is open to all women of the community. The only requirements for membership are to be female and give and/or get $1,000 each year. Every dollar donated by the members is passed along to the selected program.
