During the past 30 years, a noticeable increase in the incidence of reported child abuse and neglect has occurred and we have been called on to provide help that changes the lives of families for the better.
Most recently, Family & Children First and Family Place joined forces to better help children and families affected by abuse, neglect and violence. With over 155 years of total combined experience and expertise in prevention, intervention and treatment, families and children in our region now have access to comprehensive, seamless support as they face serious challenges.
While our name has changed, our Mission is constant – to strengthen our community through research based services that heal the trauma of abuse, violence and neglect and promote safe, healthy and stable families. Today, we educate families to prevent abuse, respond to children on the very day abuse comes to light, treat victims to reduce damage to their lives, and take steps to protect children from further maltreatment.
