Why Give?

Over $1.5 billion is spent every year in Maryland treating the life-term effects of child abuse. We must work together to create changes in families throughout Maryland that will have a positive impact for generations to come. The Family Tree educates and empowers parents to help them make good decisions when raising their families —the ultimate result is to help children.

Our programs are effective and efficient. Seventy-five cents of every dollar we raise goes directly to our child abuse prevention programs. Your money will be used to fund parenting classes, Parents Anonymous® support groups, home visiting programs, our 24-hour Parenting HelpLine, and youth development programs. 

Just take a moment and read these stories! They're about courageous parents and families who needed a helping hand.
