In 1974, The Junior League of Fort Worth formed the Tarrant County Child Abuse Task Force in response to the growing problem of child abuse and neglect in our community. This group surveyed local social service agencies and determined there was a great need for preventive services for parents and caregivers.
The call to action was answered with funding from the Sid W. Richardson Foundation, the Junior League of Fort Worth, and a state contract. The Parenting Guidance Center, as it was then called, became a reality in 1975 and has continued to provide services to parents, caregivers, children, families and people in need. Since that time, the agency’s purpose has been to prevent child abuse and neglect by promoting positive parenting and to serve as a resource center when abuse does occur.
In 1980, The Parenting Center became a partner agency of the United Way of Metropolitan Tarrant County. Several other social service agencies have collaborated with us on projects that benefit the community and use resources in an efficient manner.
