B.A.B.E.S., Inc. Child Abuse Prevention Program is a family strengthening program; providing a proactive approach to the prevention of child abuse. This innovative program was designed to alleviate stress for young parents (up to age 27), while protecting the child from possibly becoming a victim and a statistic of abuse. The foundation and purpose for our much needed and well supported program: abuse of children as a result of limited support, financial strain, addiction, low self-esteem, etc. B.A.B.E.S. provides an age appropriate environment for children, while also providing non-judgmental support for the parents at no cost. The program is designed to accommodate family schedules and offer children the opportunity to grow in a positive setting that is conducive to the development of essential skills and values. B.A.B.E.S. exists to function as one of the many components necessary to turn the alarming child abuse trend around. Many young parents feel trapped, frustrated, and consequently transfer these emotions to the child. The children will be protected from experiences which perpetuate abusive behavior, through the provision of support, understanding to young parents, and a fun and safe place for children.
