An eastern Idaho nonprofit that housed several programs to help curb child abuse and neglect has shuttered its doors.

KIDK-TV reports this morning that Help, Inc. has closed its Idaho Falls office effective immediately, citing "financial issues." As a result, a number of domestic violence programs, including El Valor de los Padres, Parents as Teachers, Positive Parenting, Right from the Start and the Happiest Baby on the Block, are without a home. 

Contacted by KIDK-TV, a spokeswoman for United Way of Idaho Falls said they were actively looking to replace the agency's role in the community, giving top priority to child abuse intervention programs. The Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center, the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Center, and local law enforcement all indicated that would provide immediate help.
