Causes: Family Services
Mission: The organization is committed to providing education and supportive services to strengthen the family unit and enhance family functioning. Through our programs we have seen many families avoid the situations that can lead to child abuse and provide the nurturing environment their children need. It is our belief that by reaching out to families in need and providing support, by preventing and alleviating child abuse, we save our state thousands of dollars in after-care costs.
