Because Childhood Lasts a Lifetime.

Prevent Child Abuse America (PCA America) supports children and families, creating conditions to prevent trauma.

PCA America and the NBA have partnered for more than 20 years, united by our shared mission to create positive childhood experiences through mentoring, youth sports, and a commitment to helping all families thrive.

Healthy children become healthier, happier adults. Guided by strong evidence, PCA America drives better outcomes for kids through community-based programs and resources, advocacy for federal, state, local and corporate family-friendly policies, and building public awareness and action. Preventing child abuse and neglect seems BIG, but #PreventionlsPossible, with partners like you.

Children thrive when they have caring, trusted adults in their lives. For some children, a coach may be the most caring and trusted adult in their life. The actions you take, the things you say, and the way you make kids feel will have a profound impact on their overall development.
