Capital City LIVE! benefits children and families partnering with Family Building Blocks. Each year, our Therapeutic Classrooms, Home Visiting services, and Parenting Education programs support over 1,100 children and 750 families in Marion and Polk counties. Annually, 99% of these children remain living safely with their families, avoiding foster care and the devastation of abuse and neglect. While youth correctional facilities and foster care cost tax payers nearly $140,000 a year per child, Family Building Blocks’ critical prevention programs cost just $7,500. If you have a dollar to spend, spend it on prevention!
