Media Room

The Family Tree is Maryland's leading nonprofit dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Through effective, research-backed programs, we create changes in families throughout Maryland that will have a positive impact for generations to come. We are a national affiliate of Prevent Child Abuse America, Parents Anonymous and The National Exchange Club.

The Family Tree relies on local media to help us give parents the support and resources they need to make good decisions when raising their families.
