When families spend time together, the interaction increases children’s social-emotional growth and strengthens family bonds. These are important factors in the prevention of child abuse and neglect – the very mission of Exchange Family Center. Pinwheels for Prevention is not only a family fun day, it’s also an opportunity to learn about how EFC strengthens families, enhancing the protective factors that reduce the risk of childhood trauma.
The Exhange Family Center’s EChO (Early Childhood Outreach) program offers consultation services and support to child care providers and families when a young child’s behavior presents a challenge in the classroom. EChO is funded by the Partnership through Smart Start.
