Programs of the Family Nurturing Center

Child Abuse Treatment Services at Family Nurturing Center encompasses multiple program components for children and families impacted by abuse and neglect.

Have you ever wished that babies came with an instruction manual? Gene Gardner, founder of Every Parent’s Library, recognized the privilege, and incredible responsibility of raising a child, and wanted to offer support for families. “I knew that people needed access to information,” said Gene, “but also realized that parents are busy. Videos seemed to be the perfect medium to help people get the skills needed to be great parents.”

The H.O.P.E. (Helping Others Parent Effectively) Program is a comprehensive Parenting Education and Support Program designed to meet the needs of at-risk  families referred by Hamilton County Job and Family Services.

The Kids on the Block Program provides school based prevention services which increase public awareness about the problem of child abuse and equip children with the skills to recognize, resist and report such abuse.

Nurturing Parenting Programs are family based parenting education programs that help families establish a nurturing way of life. Parents and children attend together so that all family members can benefit from participation in the program.

A 12 week program serving adults who experienced childhood sexual abuse victimization.

Family Nurturing Center is pleased to offer the Darkness to Light organization's Stewards of Children curriculum throughout Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati. Stewards of Children is a revolutionary prevention program designed to teach adults to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. 

Visitation provides an opportunity for children to visit with non-custodial parents in a safe, supervised setting, and build skills needed to enhance healthy family functioning.
