About Us

The Family Tree is Maryland’s leading child abuse prevention organization. Since 1974, The Family Tree has led the way in building awareness, educating and inspiring hope to everyone involved in efforts to prevent child abuse and neglect in Maryland.

We know the quality of parenting can effect child development and behavior for a lifetime. An investment today in childhood saves lives, preserves families, reduces crime, improves educational results for our children and is the best bet for our community’s economic development initiatives. 

The Family Tree serves as the state’s exclusive Parents Anonymous® and Prevent Child Abuse America chapters and is also an affiliate of the National Exchange Club Foundation. We reach over 20,000 people annually through evidence informed parenting education, training, and public awareness activities. 

As a leader in the fight against child abuse and neglect, The Family Tree gives Maryland’s children and families a possibility of a brighter future.
