About ESCAPE                                        

Mission Statement

ESCAPE’s mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect before a child is hurt by providing education, intervention, and support programs to families in crisis.

ESCAPE stops child abuse before it starts.

Founded in 1983 by the Houston-area chapters of   The National ExchangeClub,  ESCAPE Family Resource Center began as part of a national project dedicated to preventing child abuse and neglect in local communities across the country. ESCAPE is a nonprofit, 501(c)3, organization that relies on private support to prevent and combat emotional, physical, and sexual violence towards children. Contributions from area Exchange Clubs, individuals, corporations, foundations, churches, and other organizations make it possible for us to provide child abuse prevention programs and parenting classes to families looking for ways to create safe and happy homes.
