We prevent the harm. We heal the hurt.

Family Support Line’s core mission is to advance the prevention and treatment of child sexual abuse. Our continuum of services helps children and families get the help they need to be safe, heal, break the cycle of abuse, and thrive.  It also helps ensure that professionals who work with children and families have the support, training, and resources they need to recognize and respond to allegations of abuse, as well as meet the needs of children and families affected by sexual abuse.  

We Can All Make a Difference in a Child's Life

Parents

Know the signs. Protect your kids.

Events

Every December, Spasso’s Italian Grill in Media teams up with Family Support Line for a brunch with Santa. 20% of all proceeds from the event are donated to Family Support Line. Reservations are required and Family Support Line supporters are encouraged to attend! Make your reservations early as this event sells out every year. 

Every April in observance of Child Abuse Prevention Month, Family Support Line hosts an awards event to recognize a member/company of the Delaware County community for their exceptional commitment, leadership, and dedicated passion to protecting vulnerable children and families in Delaware County. Corporate sponsorships are available!

Our signature annual fundraising event featuring a silent auction, games, and other unique ways for supporters to give towards Family Support Line’s mission. Corporate sponsorships are available!

Each year our Children’s Advocacy Center Family Advocates select several of our families who have experienced a dramatic change in their economic and support systems as a result of child sexual abuse occurring in the home. Many of these families have had to relocate and leave their belongings behind. Winter Wishes donates items to these families so their holidays can be a little warmer and happy. Individuals and companies can adopt a family for this important giving event during the holidays!  

Family Support Line’s version of Giving Tuesday, a national campaign to encourage donors to give to organizations during the holidays (and specifically on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving).  Please consider making your Giving Tuesday donation to Family Support Line!

Family Support Line has an on-going wish list of in-kind donations that are needed by the agency throughout the year including snacks, water, and office supplies. This is a great way for companies, clubs, and religious institutions to support Family Support Line through organizing donation drives and giving back to their community!
