Mission Statement: To advocate for children and provide positive family support and education.
Our vision is: Every child, Safe, Healthy, Happy.
We are the La Porte County Child Abuse Prevention Council, Inc., and a parent resource center that services La Porte, Porter, Pulaski, Starke, Newton, and Jasper counties in Indiana.
We offer several programs, including Healthy Families, Community Partners, Early Head Start, and Parents as Teachers. Most of our services are home based, in that families are assigned a home visitor who will meet with them in their home, or a place that is comfortable to them. Our staff is trained to provide guidance and information on topics such as child development, discipline, finances, and early literacy. We also offer parenting classes, and monthly playgroups on site, which are open to the public.
We have a Children's Advocacy Center which offers children the opportunity to talk about alleged sexual or physical abuse with a trained forensic interviewer. Our CAC also presents Body Safety (good touch/bad touch) in elementary schools in La Porte and Porter counties, with a goal of presenting at schools in every county we service.
All of our programs are voluntary, and offered at no cost to families. They are designed to help parents strengthen their parenting skills, and improve family relationships.
