This fun and interactive fundraiser was started because of the happy, carefree child we envision playing in each playhouse. This kind of happy, stable and safe home life is what everyone deserves. However, when violence enters in, families face considerable challenges and need help. Violence affects everyone in the family. Violence not only leaves physical injuries, but also causes emotional injuries that are often most damaging.
Family Service Rochester partners with families to make real change. We meet families where they are and support each family member to address their needs and concerns, and make decisions for future relationships. For some families, working to overcome the violence and restore relationships is the decision. For others, finding ways for children to safely maintain relationships with both parents, who are no longer together, is the outcome.
In all services, Family Service Rochester works with clients to identify and draw on their strengths. This way of working with families is not only the most effective way of making change, but also empowers each individual person now and into the future. The programs Family Service Rochester offers that directly address family violence are:
* In collaboration with Olmsted County Community Services
** In collaboration with the Women’s Shelter
