Protecting children. Preserving families. Since 2003.


Abuse, neglect and family separation are significant problems in the communities we serve, and without help, the long-term impact on children can prevent them from living healthy, productive lives. Our programs are designed to prevent child abuse, neglect and family separation and help heal and treat children already affected by these maladies. With nearly a century of collective experience working with children, we know that the best way to accomplish our mission is to work with families, whenever possible, to strengthen their ability to care for their children safely. Over 2,600 children and families are served by our programs. An additional 10,000 individuals receive critical safety information through our outreach and education services.​
