We are dedicated to the wellbeing of children and families. Together, with our partners and communities, we support victims of family violence and advocate for social change to prevent abuse.
The Center for Family Safety and Healing fully addresses all aspects of family violence, including child abuse and neglect, teen dating abuse, domestic violence and elder abuse, thanks to an impressive combination of public and private resources.
Benefits of our multidisciplinary team approach include:
- A one-stop, coordinated response to family violence for individuals and families through partnerships with law enforcement, child protective services, prosecution and a wide range of community resources
- An expanded forum for education, advocacy and ongoing research
In 2011, the Center for Child and Family Advocacy at Nationwide Children's (founded in 2002) and the Columbus Coalition Against Family Violence (founded in 1998) merged into one organization, becoming The Center for Family Safety and Healing. This allowed us to combine the strengths of both organizations to form one integrated team powerful enough to help break the cycle of family violence.
