Families come in many different forms!


We are dedicated to ensuring all children and families in Rutherford County have a community built around them that uplifts, supports and guides parents, caregivers, children and survivors.  

This week you can support us in our mission to serve survivors of domestic violence and child abuse by participating in our Power of the Purse & Pocket online auction. 



Our Mission Is You.

Family life is complex and can be difficult at times to navigate. Our focus is advocating for the needs of all children and families in our community – we are here to give you the tools and support you need. 

Our mission is to provide comprehensive family resources through advocacy, education, prevention, and intervention, in an effort to eliminate child abuse, family violence and sexual assault, as well as, increase self-sufficiency in order to enhance the quality of life in our community.

Educational Support

Earning your high school diploma can be stressful, especially when trying to parent a young child at the same time. With our ParentLearn program, our goal is to give you the support and resources you need – from free childcare and transportation, to parenting guidance and education – to assist in your journey.
