The Family Enhancement Center was founded in 1993 as the Center for Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment. The motivation came from three passionate therapists who identified a need in our community to help our most vulnerable members: children experiencing abuse and neglect.
Our goal is to prevent child abuse and to promote healing among children who have experienced abuse.
Since 1993, the Family Enhancement Center has expanded its services and we now offer parent education support programs, a full range of counseling services, parent assessments, and in home parent development services.
The Family Enhancement Center currently provides help to over 200 families and over 600 children dealing with abuse issues in Minneapolis, St. Paul and the greater Twin Cities area. Our prevention education programs and workshops reach even more parents and professionals. We’re a small organization but our reach is wide!
