20 Apr Partner Spotlight: Family & Children’s Place
Family & Children’s Place is a leading agency in Louisville and Southern Indiana working to stop and prevent the trauma of child abuse, violence and neglect, and help children and families recover and heal. With help from Family & Children’s Place, children and families affected by violence, abuse, and neglect have the chance to lead happy, healthy lives, filled with safe, healthy and meaningful relationships.
Services include no-cost therapy in homes, offices, and the community; child and family advocacy; information on victims assistance; case management; referrals to appropriate community services; and domestic violence groups for children impacted by violence in the home. With help, separated parents and children rebuild relationships through our Supervised Visitation Center, first-time parents learn to manage their new responsibilities and give their baby the best start possible. Students learn to make healthy choices, avoid drugs and alcohol, and access resources they use to improve socially and academically. Families are assured safe, secure housing. Through collaborations with the Crimes Against Children Unit of Louisville Metro Police, Child Protective Services, U of L School of Medicine and the Commonwealth’s Attorney office, our Child Advocacy Centers ended the trauma of physical and sexual abuse for more than 1,300 children last year alone.
Family & Children’s Place provides proven interventions for children and families hurt by violence, abuse, or neglect. Last year alone, we helped nearly 5,000 children and family members regain hope. We can’t succeed without the help of the community. Donate, volunteer, join us for one of our events – Caper, Child Abuse Prevention Breakfasts in Indiana and Kentucky, the June Drive Out Child Abuse Golf Scramble – or join us at noon the first Friday of the month for a lunch and learn tour of the agency and our Kosair Charities Child Advocacy Center.
