PCAC strives to provide each family with the resources they need to recover from the trauma of abuse.  We also want to assist families in securing basic and/or complex needs, whether related to the abuse situation or not.  Each family is provided our 'What Now?' booklet during the visit for their child's interview.  Below are some of the more commonly accessed community resources.  You can also review a full list of community organizations by visiting the Paulding Family Connection website - just click on their logo to open a .pdf with an extensive list of resources.
