Who We Are

The mission of the Family Help Center is to provide free support to families - and safety to children - when parenting gets tough, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Since 1973, we have provided services to families with children of all ages - the support they can't always get from family or friends.  Agency services include: 24-Hour Parent Helpline and in-home crisis intervention, phone follow-up services, parent support groups with companion child care groups, child enrichment programs, intensive home-based preventive services, mandated preventive services, advocacy and linkage, and community education. No fees are charged for these services.  The Family Help Center also has a full service day care center which is licensed for 124 children. 

 

What We Do

Through the Family Help Center's services, we stop the intergenerational cycle of violence, as statistics show that approximately 95% of parents who abuse/neglect their children were maltreated as children.  As a nonprofit agency, we are dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and neglect in all of its forms - physical, emotional, and sexual.  We offer immediate assistance - with no application procedures, no eligibility requirements, and no waiting period.  Perceived by families as being safe and non-threatening, the Family Help Center is highly effective in preventing and stopping child abuse and neglect.
