Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Volunteers support our organization in a variety of ways. They can be found supporting educators in classrooms, working with families in their homes, assisting staff in the office and lending a hand at fundraising events. Specially trained volunteers may speak at community fairs and professional conferences around the city, helping us inform the public about the dangers of child abuse and ESCAPE's efforts to protect children from this epidemic. No matter how you volunteer, your efforts are invaluable. With your help, we can change the world, one family at a time.
"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.
