Family Enhancement Center

Strong Families, Safe Kids

No child should have to experience abuse.


Childhood is both precious and brief; child abuse shatters a childhood and its effect is damaging for a child, the family and our community.

The mission of Family Enhancement Center is to create lasting solutions to prevent and heal child abuse. We strive to build strong children, strong families and support communities to create a society where children are safe, respected and valued.

Child abuse robs children of their childhood—we help give it back.

Family Enhancement Center Annual Breakfast

The Family Enhancement Center’s Annual Breakfast is Thursday December 5th at 8:00am. This FREE breakfast is held at the beautiful Midland Hills Country Club. We are thrilled to have speaker John Collopy of RE/MAX Results speaking on the topic of recovery from child abuse, the philosophy that rescued him from his lowest moments, and the importance of managing mental health.

This gathering is a great way to learn more about the services we offer! Also, with the holidays just around the corner, it's our way of saying "thank you" to our friends, colleagues, and donors. Click HERE to register for the event and learn more about our guest speaker John Collopy.

New Programming

Drum Beat Starts October 22nd

Our new service program, Drum Beat, has recently started at the Family Enhancement Center. This specific program provides a group-based approach to healing trauma. It has been created for young men between the ages of 13-18 who have experienced physical, emotional and sexual abuse, as well as domestic violence, community violence, and other traumatic events.

Social and emotional expression through music can provide youth with a different way to release their emotions beyond words. The group aims to engage youth in creating their own community that provides them with a sense of safety and pride.
