In the spring of 1979, the National Exchange Club adopted the prevention of child abuse as a national project.
In 1988, The Exchange Club of Rome became interested in opening a Child Abuse Prevention Center, after learning of the impact of other Exchange-sponsored Parent Aide programs and that no resource of this nature existed locally.
In June of 1989, a task force headed by Katie Dempsey was formed to explore the possibility of opening a Child Abuse Prevention Center in Rome/Floyd County. Approximately 40 individuals representing local community and social service agencies, law enforcement, legislators, judges, medical professionals and interested community members met to study the national Exchange Club Child Abuse Prevention program and to investigate the need for a local Center in Floyd County.
In June of 1990, The Rome Exchange Club unanimously extended its support and voted to adopt the Child Abuse Prevention Center project.
In November of 1991, The Exchange Club Family Resource Center was officially opened!
