The Family Development Center works to keep children safe and strengthen families. Our programs serve families with children prenatally through age five.

Welcome to Family Development Center

About Family Development Center:

Family Development Center exists to provide child abuse and neglect intervention and prevention services to extremely high-risk families. We are the only agency in Douglas County serving this age group that offers therapeutic, comprehensive services specifically designed to address the complex familial issues of child abuse and neglect. FDC program components effectively identify and reduce family risk factors, while educating parents and providing therapeutic services for children, ages 0 - 5 years. FDC offers therapeutic early childhood education, intensive home-based and center-based parent training/skill building, mental health support, respite care, meals, transportation, a clothing closet and emergency food pantry.
