Our prevention services make families stronger before the child welfare system intervenes and families are torn apart.

Families are breaking the cycles of poverty and leading their families with strength and dignity. We provide evidence-based interventions, parenting workshops, and comprehensive support services for parents and caregivers striving to create a safe, structured, and sustainable environment for their children.

Watch and learn how you can come alongside One More Child to help families in need.

We served 250,259 children and individuals in 2023.

We partner with local churches and businesses to meet the needs of children and families in their community, working relentlessly to show the compassion of Christ.
