Family Building Blocks is a private, nonprofit organization that works to break the intergenerational cycle of child abuse and neglect by providing services for high-risk families with young children. It focuses on building successful and resilient children, strengthening parents and preserving families through comprehensive early childhood and family support services.

In 2013, 99 percent of the children who were involved in FBB’s core programs were able to live safely with their parents, thus avoiding abuse, neglect, and foster care.

Family Building Blocks has two locations in Salem: Chelsea’s Place on Lancaster Drive NE, and Gracie’s Place on Edgewater Street NW, and one location in Stayton, Doris’s Place on N. 3rd Ave.
