Who We Are

History

Flag icon with '83 printed on it

Formerly known as the Child Abuse Prevention Center, our organization was founded in 1983 from a single volunteer-based parent-aide program to a large, diverse and talented organization employing more than 120 professional staff, two-thirds of whom provide direct services to children, their families, young adults and adult clients.

Currently we offer 10 programs, each designed to meet specific community needs. Since our founding, we have provided services to more than 300,000 children and parents in our community. Last year, our programs directly served over 6,000 children and families from all walks of life–each of them coming to us to help break the generational cycle of abuse and neglect.

The devastating effects of abuse and trauma can last a lifetime. We believe that by providing our clients with the necessary tools to cope, therapy and counseling to work through their challenges, our clients can end the generational cycle of trauma and become successful individuals.
