Exchange Club for Child Abuse Prevention Center of N. Mississippi
Rating: 4 stars 1 review
Issues: Crime & Law
Location: PO Box 1841 Oxford MS 38655 USA
Mission: The Family Center, founded in 1997, grew out of the need to address the increasing incidents of child abuse/neglect. There were no services available to the 39 counties in North Mississippi. Our mission is to work with families who are at-risk for abuse in order to teach them skills that will allow the family to stay together, if at all possible. We use trained volunteers (parent-aides) to work with these families in their home for at least a year.

I am the type of person that does not like to waste my time. I have worked with and for parent aid for about 20 years, why because my time is not wasted. I have watched families & children go thru the program to the point that I was really proud of them. Specific example; watched one family (parents& 2 children) after our work with them want to give back. At our big WE-Care Banquet they go up before about 400 people and tell their story and thank P-A. There were lots of tears. This is just one example, their are many more to share.
