Saratoga Center For The Family
Saratoga Center for the Family works to strengthen children, families, and our community by reducing the effects of abuse, trauma, and family dysfunction through advocacy, education and mental health therapy.
The agency was incorporated in 1978 as the Saratoga County Task Force on Child Abuse and Neglect and was started as a grass roots response to concerns about child abuse and neglect in Saratoga County. In 1993 the Task force changed its name to Saratoga Center for the Family to reflect the centers commitment to serving not only those who have been abused but to build stronger families and empower individuals with a goal of preventing abuse before it starts. Today the Saratoga Center for the Family provides abuse prevention programs, mental health services, victims' advocacy and is home to the Harriet M. West Child Advocacy Center.
