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.
