Family Enrichment Center was founded in 1977 in Bowling Green, Kentucky, by a small group of concerned citizens who wanted to raise community awareness and prevent child abuse. We are the only agency whose sole purpose is to prevent child abuse or neglect. For more decades we have been working to “empower families and prevent child abuse”. We have been able to do this because of the kindness and generous support from the community.
While the numbers of children who are abused in south central Kentucky may vary from year to year, it is abundantly clear that there needs to be more services to address this critical issue. Our new location will allow us to increase services as funds allow and help families end the cycle of violence or stop one more child from being harmed.
EMPOWERING FAMILIES AND PREVENTING CHILD ABUSE IN SOUTH CENTRAL KENTUCKY
The beauty of this problem is that it is 100% preventable if we all work together! We have so much hope that if we can all volunteer to help at Wee Care, read to a child, consider becoming a foster parent, take a moment to help a family who is struggling, or form a team for Mud Happens that over time we can decrease the need for Family Enrichment Center services. We would all be happy to be told there is no need for us to do this work anymore and look forward to that day!
