Mission Statement

Family Resource Center’s mission is to give abused kids a chance for a better life by preventing and treating all forms of child abuse and neglect and by strengthening families through family-centered therapeutic, educational, and support services.


Family Resource Center started as a pilot project at St. Louis Children’s Hospital in 1974. It is now one of Missouri’s largest family counseling agencies, specializing in the prevention and treatment of child abuse.

Developed with almost 40 years of experience in this specialized field, Family Resource Center’s programs served greater than 8,000 client children and parents during 2013. Much of the agency’s work is provided in the home and is targeted at our community’s highest risk families: those identified as a result of over 50,000 official child abuse/neglect reports (involving over 85,000 children), which are received each year by the Missouri Child Abuse Hotline.

Since many children at risk are never identified or reported to the hotline, Family Resource Center has focused its newest programs on prevention work, often provided through schools, neighborhood partnerships and collaborations with other agencies. These complement and reinforce traditional programs allowing us to reach an ever larger population of children and parents who can benefit from our specialized mission.

The event was beautifully planned and all those in charge were well organized, professional and very approachable. I felt humbled and honored to be able to assist such a great cause with any place that was needed. Would definitely volunteer with and recommend this organization.
