About Bauer Family Resources

Grace Bauer founded this agency over 80 years ago based on her passion to nurture troubled youth, giving them a much needed second chance – a passion that would ultimately cost Grace her life. Though our agency has undergone significant challenges, growth and changes throughout the years, Grace’s original passion, mission and resilience remains at the very heart of our work creating brighter tomorrows by strengthening children and families today.

Bauer works with families with limited resources who seek guidance and opportunities to improve the quality of life for their children.  Bauer is a local, non-profit, social service organization that delivers a responsive array of services to improve the lives of children.

Bauer Family Resources takes a holistic approach to serving children by supporting the whole family’s needs and creating a stronger, healthier, home environment for children.
Bauer is comprised of three divisions: Bauer Early Care and Education, Bauer Community Center and Bauer Counseling.

Bauer Community Center
Bauer Community Center provides comprehensive service to the community by facilitating the development of children and youth, meeting concrete needs of individuals and families who are in times of crisis and partnering with the community to further community goals. All programs offered are free of charge and completely voluntary.

Bauer Counseling
At Bauer Counseling, our trained staff of mental health counselors, social workers and family therapists work together to ensure the best possible treatment for individuals and families. They work in both group and individual settings to help clients to communicate and begin dealing with family dysfunctions, childhood trauma, sexual abuse, substance abuse and addiction.
Though Bauer Counseling has a dedicated facility, a significant amount of counseling and family preservation services take place in the home. The goal of all services is to instill a sense of healing, understanding and closure to foster a healthier environment for a child’s development.
