Guiding Principles

We help create a world where children live free of all forms of abuse and violence through a full range of prevention and treatment programs.

The entire community is needed to protect children. Family Nurturing Center is a leader in educating the community about its role in supporting a nurturing environment for all families.

Families play a critical role in promoting individual well-being and healthy relationships. Our family based services create the greatest opportunity for lasting change.

Children’s well-being is an adult responsibility. Permanent cultural change in the way a community prevents and responds to child abuse occurs by educating adults and empowering individuals. Committing time and resources to do this is an investment in a better future.


Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility

Unique journeys, shared vision.   

Family Nurturing Center values and celebrates diversity among our participants , staff, board and other stakeholders.

We acknowledge and respect each person’s diverse visible and invisible traits, and believe that a continuum of experience and perspective makes us stronger as an organization.

We provide opportunities for each person we encounter to fully be themselves and participate in their own experiences however it best suits their needs, helping them to unlock their full potential.

We treat each other with kindness, compassion and empathy, creating a culture of belonging that promotes safety, dignity and healing for all.
