Connecting Children and Fathers

Building Relationships Between Children and Their Fathers

The Commitment:  $899,665

 

Established in 1992, the mission of Family Compass is to build healthy families and strengthen our community through the prevention of child abuse and neglect with the primary purpose of keeping children from entering the child welfare system. Family Compass is the only agency to exist in North Texas with the sole focus on preventing the abuse from ever happening in the first place.

 

Funds will be used over three years to expand the existing Community Education and Home Mentoring programs by hiring and training an additional two staff members to increase capacity and services. These programs will provide fathers with education, tools and resources to become informed, engaged and supportive, which ultimately benefits their children.
