Family Centre’s story began when Martha Dismont started tutoring a young boy who needed academic help. This young boy’s mother then referred a number of other children to Martha who were also in need of academic support. Through helping children academically, Martha found out that these children were also facing a number of other issues such as abuse and neglect. She thus founded the organization to offer clinical counseling support to children in Bermuda. Martha and the team at Family Centre soon realized that prevention and capacity building elements were key in stopping the issues before they began, and so the organization began offering training, prevention and community services.
