Preventing Child Abuse by Strengthening Families

The Exchange Club Family Center of Northeast Florida, located in Jacksonville, Florida, offers free Parent Aide 
services to at-risk families across the First Coast to help deter child abuse and strengthen families.

The mission of the Exchange Club Family Center, Northeast Florida is to help parents learn to provide safe, healthy and nurturing home environments in which their children may thrive. We focus our efforts on prevention and treatment through a voluntary in-home program entitled Parent Aide.

ANNOUNCEMENT - After much consideration, due to the current situation and in accordance with continued social distancing measures, we have decided to cancel the 27th Annual Child Abuse Prevention Luncheon and Awards Celebration. We know how much everyone looks forward to joining our colleagues, supporters, and advocates each year during this event, and we too are disappointed that we will not have the opportunity to celebrate our work together again this year. Please join us in celebrating this year's Child Abuse Prevention Award Recipients by clicking the link below.



Dedicated Staff

The staff at our organization is dedicated and specially trained to handle family issues and help parents replace abusive behaviors with effective skills for nonviolent, nurturing parenting.

About Us

In 1979, the Exchange Club Family Center of Northeast Florida adopted Parent Aide as its national project. By working hands-on with families in a consistent way, we have successfully helped families break the cycle of abuse. Meet our Board.

Constant & Consistent

Constant and consistent service is maintained through home visits which occur one to two times per week for a period ranging from four months to one year. Once a family connects with one of our compassionate Parent Aides, they no longer need to worry about feeling overwhelmed or alone. Our Parent Aides will help guide them every step of the way.

Breaking the Cycle

Our Parent Aide model is based on research and concepts first introduced by Dr. Ray Heifer and Dr. Henry Kempe, who were pioneers in the field in the 1960s. Their leading research on battered children's syndrome expressed the belief that most abusive parents grew up without a positive parenting role model. Here at the Exchange Club Family Center of Northeast Florida, we are working to break that cycle by providing at-risk parents the tools they need to be successful and to inspire their own children. Learn more about how we help families through our Parenting Services.

Happy Mother and Daughter
