The organization is a private non-profit agency funded by Connecticut area Exchange Clubs, private donors and the Connecticut Department of Children and Families. It is part of a network of centers established by the National Exchange Club Foundation for the Prevention of Child Abuse.
KIDSAFE CT has developed several outreach programs for at-risk youth residing in the Rockville area. The program includes a Drop-in Center that provides the youth with a safe, drug free alternative to the streets. This program has been commended by the local police department and are welcomed in the Middle School as a resource for these youth during the school day.
The Positive Parenting Program Is a statewide initiative funded both privately and by the Department of Children and Families. KIDSAFE CT’s “Triple P” Program is a curriculum-based adaptation of the Parent Aide Program, which has been serving families for over 30 years.
The program provides home-based intervention and prevention services, including advocacy and education to families whose children are at risk of child abuse and/or neglect. Parent Educators are trained in providing assistance to parents in areas of child development, discipline, and home management skills. The program is available free of charge for families with children ages 2-17.

Our Mentoring Program works with at-risk youth, some of whom live in foster homes and residential facilities, at a critical juncture in their lives. Many of these youth do not have strong role models to look up to or give them guidance. These youth NEED local mentors who can provide insight, guidance, and spend much-needed quality time with them.
