Founded in 1983 by the Exchange Clubs of the Houston area, ESCAPE Family Resource Center began as part of a national project dedicated to preventing child abuse and neglect in local communities across the country. We are a nonprofit, 501(c)3, organization that relies on private support to prevent and combat emotional, physical, and sexual violence towards children. Contributions from 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.
E.S.C.A.P.E. is an acronym, which stands for: Exchange Supported Child Abuse Prevention Effort
