According to Family Compass Development Chair Whitney Strauss,
“I am proud to serve on the Board of Directors and as the Development Chair. The mission of Family Compass is to build healthy families and a strong North Texas community by preventing child abuse and neglect. This is accomplished through two home mentoring programs and community based and educational programs for families that have elevated risk for child abuse and reside in the most economically disadvantaged communities throughout Dallas and Collin County. All of our programs are evidence based, voluntary and free of charge.
“Our wish is simple. Our wish is for all children to have a life free from abuse and neglect and be able to experience the joy of childhood. We wish this for the holiday season – and for all seasons – because every child has the fundamental right to a healthy family and environment, the opportunity to succeed in school and the capacity to experience life without violence.”
