Parent Aid - Child Abuse Prevention Center, Inc.
April 28, 2011
Parent Aid is truly a grass roots organization whose mission, to serve the community by educating parents before abuse happens, perfectly fills a need that has been created in the present day economic environment. Today's limited fiscal support goes to intervention and removal of children from abusive situations and not to prevention in the first place. Parent Aid serves those who have not yet aggreived to the point of governmental intervention and the governmental supported services that come with their involvement. Parent Aid allows families to break the cycle of abuse by providing education and support before it becomes a part of the family dynamic. More than anything is prevents the next generation of parents, today's children, from being victimized and conditioned to accept abuse in any form as an appropriate parenting tool.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my time with this organization by meeting and hearing the clients and how their outlook as parents has been altered.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
grow it to serve as many communies as possible. I would also work to spread the ideal of prevention by supporting parents and parent-to-be before they resort to or more likely, recycle the concept of abuse to achieve desired results in their children.
Board Member & I support this organization through board involvement and volunteer my time to support any and all community events.
