Welcome to Family Compass

(formerly known as Child Abuse Prevention Center)

Working to prevent the cycle of child abuse and bring hope to families & communities throughout Dallas.

The mission of Family Compass is to build healthy families and a strong Dallas community by preventing child abuse and neglect. We implement proven effective programs, so that parents can be equipped and empowered to raise healthy and productive children.

“I would like to thank Family Compass for all of the services they have provided for me in the last year. Their services are wonderful and have taught me so much. Things like how to be a better parent, to believe in myself, they have helped me get back in school and a lot more. Having a case worker means a lot to me because my case worker treats me like family and works with my schedule. She tries to meet my needs as much as possible and that is why I love Family Compass.”
