The Family Assistance Commission was established by the Bartlett Board of Mayor and Aldermen in 2000 to assist Bartlett citizens in dire need. The Commission works to either give direct assistance or connect a family in need with an area non-profit organization or church.

The Commission has assisted individuals or families with home repair, necessities after a disaster, utility bills or even a mortgage payment.
