Mission:
Child Abuse and neglect in the United States represents a national emergency. Nearly one million children are victims of child abuse and/or neglect and well over one thousand die each year in the United States as a result of injuries from being abused (National Clearinghouse on Child Abuse and Neglect Information, 2004). Each day in America, 4 children are killed by abuse or neglect (Children?s Defense Fund, February 2007). Evidence is increasingly demonstrating that child maltreatment is a precursor to many of the major social problems of our country. Long-term studies of low achievers, runaways, substance abusers, prostitutes and incarcerated individuals point to a disturbing picture. Abuse is a consistent and pervasive element in their backgrounds. Low self-esteem and poor self-concept are ever-present (Coalition for Children Inc., Sherryll Kraizer, Ph.D., 1996-2006). Children who experience maltreatment are at increased risk for experiencing adverse health effects and behaviors as adults, including smoking, alcoholism, drug abuse, physical inactivity, severe obesity, depression, suicide, sexual promiscuity, and certain chronic diseases (Felitti, 1998). 95% of child abusers were themselves abused as children and 78% of the national prison population were abused as children (Groth).

From 4-1-06 through 3-31-07, there were 33,231 reports of child maltreatment made to CPS in Arizona. 50 Arizona children died of maltreatment in 2005 and 40 died of maltreatment in 2004 (Arizona Child Fatality Review Team Report, November 2006). A child in Arizona is abused or neglected every hour (Children?s Defense Fund). Arizona ranks fifth nationally in the percent of children with substantiated reports of abuse and neglect, almost twice the national average (Child Welfare League of America). Young children are more likely to die of child abuse or neglect in the Phoenix metropolitan area than in any other major metropolitan area in the country (Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine).

All of CCC's programs are intended to prevent child abuse and strengthen families.
