Our Mission is to prevent and treat child abuse by strengthening families and neighborhoods.
Everything we do is focused on creating a better future for our children. We provide families and neighborhoods the tools they need to keep children safe, prevent abuse, manage conflict and support the changing needs of families.
Envisioning and achieving a better future for children requires a compassionate, holistic approach to strengthening families. Our resources, tools and programs focus on prevention, intervention and treatment. Here, we are able to provide the right services, at the right time, for the families we serve.History of Organization:
Family Resources traces its roots back over 150 years to the Pittsburgh Association for the Improvement of the Poor (PAIP). Founded by Pittsburgh visionaries Mary Thaw and Louisa Herron in 1877, PAIP initially aided low-income families with social and health issues and offered ï¿½fresh airï¿½ camps for inner-city children. PAIP continued its progressive and compassionate social welfare programming for more than 100 years.
In 1986, PAIP merged with the Child Abuse Prevention Center, one of the regionï¿½s earliest pioneers in interventions and treatments for both parents experiencing the challenges of parenting and the victims of child sexual abuse. In the decades after this merger, Family Resources evolved into the regionï¿½s foremost child abuse prevention and treatment agency. Our resources were devoted to helping victims reclaim their lives and enabling families to heal and regain their strength.
Today, Family Resources builds on its strong legacy of leadership in the field. Our resources, tools and programs focus on prevention, intervention and treatment. Through advocacy, community building, family education and support, and treatment services, our work offers clients a compassionate, holistic approach to prevention and healing.
