About ESCAPE Family Resource Center


Mission Statement

The mission of ESCAPE Family Resource Center is to prevent child abuse and neglect before a child is hurt by providing education, intervention and support programs to families in crisis.

ESCAPE stops child abuse before it starts.

Founded in 1983 by the Exchange Clubs of the Houston area, ESCAPE Family Resource Center began as part of a national project dedicated to preventing child abuse and neglect in local communities across the country. We are a nonprofit, 501(c)3, organization that relies on private support to prevent and combat emotional, physical, and sexual violence towards children. Contributions from individuals, corporations, foundations, churches, and other organizations make it possible for us to provide child abuse prevention programs and parenting classes to families looking for ways to create safe and happy homes.

E.S.C.A.P.E. is an acronym, which stands for:  Exchange Supported Child Abuse Prevention Effort

Our Beliefs

  • Stress is the greatest factor placing children at risk for being victims of abuse or neglect.
  • All families experience stress at some point in their lives.
  • Most people parent their children using the methods their parents used with them.
