Child Abuse Prevention Services

Services to Strengthen Families and
Prevent the Abuse and Neglect of Children

In partnership with our community and other county agencies, our programs provide no-cost, community-based prevention and early intervention services to strengthen families, promote healthy family functioning and encourage families to become self-reliant. Programs include:

  • Healthy Families Fairfax
    This home-based early intervention and prevention program offers pregnant or parents of newborns at risk of maltreating their child an opportunity to learn parenting skills and receive emotional support and case management services.
  • Neighborhood Networks
    Support and referral services link families who are facing significant challenges to community resources and provide them with opportunities to build leadership skills to become resources within their own neighborhoods.
  • Parenting Education Program
    Group-based programs, offered at community-based sites help parents and their children learn healthy, positive interactions and receive practical advice and guidance on living in harmony.
  • Volunteer and Partner Services Program
    The Volunteer and Partner Services Program engages volunteers and builds partnerships to support families with children who are at risk of abuse, neglect or placed in foster care or with relatives. The program builds volunteer capacity in the division, implements programs, and directs activities that promote positive relationships within the community. Together, Volunteer and Partner Services Program and Children, Youth and Families staff, support workers by providing the most efficient, safe and stable service to our clients.
