It can be either:

We will find something to suit your family's needs today!

with the meaning "of your family" (singular)

or:

We will find something to suit your families' needs today!

with the meaning "of your families" (plural; notice the apostrophe after the word)


However, the original sentence is incorrect.

  • It can also be your family needs, where family is used as an attributive noun—as in household needs. (In fact, I'd say that version, in the context of shopping, is the most common.) – Jason Bassford May 25 at 16:45
