Help & Resources

The Family Tree recognizes the significance of research to inform the public at-large and specifically, practitioners and consumers of prevention programming and raising healthy families. We regularly evaluate and track new studies, and will update this site accordingly. Please bookmark this page for easy access to our latest prevention briefs, statistics on child well-being, and other valuable information.

Using knowledge derived from research and practice, we will be able to effectively prevent child abuse and neglect by ensuring that every family has the tools they need to raise safe and healthy children. 

If you would like additional information on preventing child abuse and neglect, please contact Patricia Cronin, Executive Director of The Family Tree, at 410-889-2300 or via email at
