Growing up, everyone faces difficulty. Some more than others. Experiences impact us whether we acknowledge it or not. Even after years (and decades) memories still persist of those defining times in our lives.
Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are potentially traumatic events that occur before a child reaches the age of 18. These experiences can dramatically affect a child’s future socially, emotionally, and physically.
Our Exchange Club Family Center (ECFC) program works to eliminate those adverse childhood experiences most importantly abuse and neglect.
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Our Pinwheel Fundraiser goal is to raise $20,000 in funds to support our Exchange Club Family Center. This campaign’s goal is to expose the real and transparent problems lingering in our community and hopefully turn support into transformational action and real community change.
In 2021, ECFC helped over 160 children (50 families). Your support can help prevent child abuse.

We can all do our part in helping children have a future. Thank you for being a part of the Family Service legacy!
