In observance of Child Abuse Prevention Month, the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office, Floyd County Police Department, Rome Police Department, Rome Floyd Fire Department, and the Exchange Clubs Family Resource Center have collaborated on a video initiative aimed at promoting healthy family relationships and safeguarding children within our community.

A video was released on April 3—recognized as Child Help National Day of Hope—that seeks to raise awareness about the prevalence of child abuse in the United States, where unfortunately, 600,000 children fall victim each year (according to the National Children’s Alliance).

The Family Resource Center is dedicated to serving families with children aged 12 or younger, as well as expectant parents. Through their comprehensive programs, they offer free weekly in-home parent education and life skills training for up to one year. The services cater to a diverse range of family dynamics, from new parents seeking guidance on child development to grandparents caring for their grandchildren, and parents seeking to strengthen their familial bonds.

To learn more about the services or to make a referral, please contact the Family Resource Center at 706-290-0764 or visit their website at .

Since its establishment in 1991, the Family Resource Center has remained steadfast in its mission to provide transformative in-home education and support to families in Floyd and Polk Counties. Our goal is to empower families to create safe, stable, and nurturing environments, ensuring that their children can thrive and reach their full potential.

If there is anyone who would like to read more information about promoting healthy interactions within their families we encourage them to review the website Positive Childhood Experiences (PCEs) – American SPCC
