Programs:

"Building Confident Families" provides adults and children with skills proven to help them prevent child abuse and neglect in their homes. This seven-session, fourteen hour family strengthening course teaches members of at-risk families ways to cope with stress, manage anger, and resolve conflict. Parents learn how to discipline children without using punishment. Typically, adults and children first receive instruction focused on enhancing their relationships and communication skills in separate, age and developmentally appropriate classrooms. Then, near the end of program sessions, family members come together to practice their new skills. “Building Confident Families” is taught in a “Full Family”, a “Half Family” and a “Parents Only” format in English, Spanish and Chinese languages. The course is delivered "on-site" at ESCAPE's facility located in central Houston and "off-site" in many facilities operated by of our 92 collaborators.

Mission:
The mission of the ESCAPE Family Resource Center is “to prevent child abuse and neglect before a child is hurt by providing intervention, education and support programs to families in crisis.”
