Prevent Child Abuse America

Prevent Child Abuse America promotes services that improve child well-being through our 50 state Chapter network and through our signature Healthy Families America program that provides intensive in-home services, equipping parents with the tools and resources they need to raise healthy and happy children.

The national office of Prevent Child Abuse America provides the vision and strategic framework for multiple areas, including:

  • Programs – identifying the needs and strategic development of new and existing programs that support children and families, including Healthy Families America®, bullying prevention and day-to-day prevention strategies through our chapter network.

  • Research – translating research into actionable and educational tools for those who are working within communities to strengthen American families.

  • Education – providing expertise on child abuse prevention through education and collaboration with organizations like Chartwells K-12, Channing Bete, and KPJR Films.

  • Awareness – advocating for public policies that support the well-being of children and families.
