Ultimately, it may well come down to CPS if your brother doesn't respect the authority of a church or other agency. And the truth is, any other individual, group, or agency other than a government agency such as CPS will not likely have the authority of law behind them. Another consideration is that some people are legally required to report abuse, so if you talk to them, they will have to report it and CPS will likely become involved anyway.

The effectiveness of CPS will depend on the culture of your local social services environment and the competence and professionalism of the representative and the resources they have available to them. A competent agent from a healthy agency will make every effort to maintain family contact and to work toward restoration of the family.

Perhaps ideally a first step would be to get the help from a non-governmental source - maybe the Salvation Army, as Rusty suggested - to try to talk to your brother and help the situation. They could lend weight to their case by letting him know that if your brother doesn't make some changes, CPS will be involved. If nothing else, they could point you to the right places for help and help you figure out your options.
