Welcome To Center For Families!
We believe that every child deserves to be safe and loved.
Being a parent is one of the most difficult jobs in the world.
We’d like to become your resource for parenting information and support. We are here to help parents be the best possible parent they can be. We offer programs that enhance parenting skills, promote understanding of child development, and promote child safety. We provide information to help parents better meet the needs of their children. We use the best practices in the field of child abuse/neglect prevention and intervention. Within the wall of Centers for Families, a family can access: The Fun Zone Play & Learn, CORE, Neighborhood Parent Aide, Parent’s Place, Parents and Children Together, the Respite Center, Welcome Baby, and more.
Through these programs, we enhanced the lives of over 4,000 families last year alone. Many of our programs are time-tested, successfully helping families for over 25 years.

JOINING TOGETHER FOR A STRONGER COMMUNITY!
If you received our recent annual appeal letter, then you read that Center for Families is currently in the process of merging with another local non-profit, Community Partnerships on 4/1/2017. This opportunity brings growth and enrichment for both organizations, as well as for our community. Through this merger, Community Partnerships and Center for Families will serve over 6,800 children, families, and individuals combined annually. Our programs and services will provide support, connection, education, and stabilization to some of those with the highest needs in our community that experience mental health and health crises, poverty, homelessness, children that are not succeeding academically, and much more.
This merger will offer increased support and infrastructure across programs so that we are able to reach more families, children, and individuals each year and provide a broader and more comprehensive array of strengths-based, individualized services with an integrated approach. While this is an exciting next step for the future of both organizations and our community, there is still much work to be done to prepare. We look forward to keeping you informed and updated on next steps in the coming months.
