Because Childhood Lasts a Lifetime.

What We Do

At Prevent Child Abuse America, we work hard to realize our vision of a world where all children grow up happy, healthy, and prepared to succeed in supportive families and communities.


Evidence shows that children’s early experiences impact them throughout life—positively and negatively. Kids raised in safe, stable, and nurturing relationships and environments are more likely to enjoy good physical and mental health and succeed academically and socially. Children who grow up happy and healthy also go on to contribute to economic prosperity for everyone. Child abuse and neglect prevention is possible, and below are the crucial issues we address every day:


Prevention Strategies

Our success relies on a nationwide network of state chapters and nearly 600 Healthy Families America home visiting sites, which provide parents and caregivers a wide variety of services and resources in communities across the country. Additionally, our respected experts develop innovative research that our vast network then puts into action. And we raise public awareness and advocate for family friendly policies at the national, state, and local levels to support programs that ensure kids and parents and caregivers get what they need to succeed.
