About the Family Nurturing Center

Family Nurturing Center is a non-profit social service agency located in Northern Kentucky and Hamilton County, OH dedicated to ending the cycle of child abuse by promoting individual well-being and healthy family relationships.  Our services and programs focus on the education, prevention, and treatment of all forms of child abuse and neglect.

Initial work to form the agency began as early as 1975 by a group of concerned citizens who recognized the magnitude of the problem of child abuse.  Formerly known as Committee For Kids, Inc., The Family Nurturing Center® began as “Citizens Committee Against Child Abuse and Neglect of Northern Kentucky” in 1988. The first program, Parents Anonymous, was held in September 1978 and the agency incorporated in 1979.

Family Nurturing Center became a United Way Member Agency in 1988 and later became an affiliate of Family Nurturing Center, National, located in Park City, Utah. Today, the agency is the largest affiliate of Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky.

Family Nurturing Center is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The Board employs a full-time Executive Director who hires talented and dedicated staff to carry out the vision and philosophy of the agency. The agency continues to use volunteers extensively in order to involve the community and maximize limited resources.

Direct service programs are offered at our Florence location as well as at donated sites across Northern Kentucky. The majority of services are provided to residents of Boone, Campbell, Grant, Kenton and Pendleton counties in Kentucky, and Hamilton County in Ohio, although there are no geographic restrictions. Strong community support and the spirit of volunteerism allow us to provide quality programs in cost effective manner.
