Prevention Works!

It is the only cure for child abuse. That’s why our work is exclusively focused on child abuse and neglect prevention:
--Public awareness campaigns
--Parent education and support programs

For every $1 we invest now in prevention, we save $4 later on treatment related to child abuse and neglect.
