Family Tree’s mission is to help people overcome child abuse, domestic violence and homelessness to become safe, strong and self-reliant.

Family Tree is the only organization in the metro area that addresses the interconnectivity between these issues and in doing so, we are changing how individuals, families, and communities see, respond to, and overcome these challenges.
