The Family Center is the hub of Beech Brook’s child abuse prevention, early intervention, parent education and support programs.

The Center is located at 6001 Woodland Ave., in the heart of Cleveland’s Central Neighborhood, where many families struggle against the overwhelming burdens of generational poverty, exposure to violence, substance abuse and other toxic stress. But our services don’t stop there. Our Family Center staff can be found throughout the city, helping to strengthen and support families in many communities so that their children have the chance to grow up in safe, healthy and stable homes.

Our Family Center is a welcoming place where families can feel free to seek information, understanding and assistance in a nonjudgmental, supportive environment.

These are just some of the services offered by the Family Center.
