PCAA is a wonderful organization dedicated to awareness and prevention of child abuse. They provide information by many methods to ensure the word gets out. From the president to the local volunteer, their purpose and dedication are evident in every thing they do.

I remain amazed at the excellent work PCAA does to combat child abuse. This discovery was made about two years ago when preparing a presentation on preventing child abuse. The request made for PCAA resources resulted in my receiving much information, some that I checked out and found to be real. I am very impressed.

Being in Alaska, it is often easy to feel disconnected from the lower 48 States. Through Prevent Child Abuse America and it's partnership with the Alaska's Children's Trust we have a voice at the table to discuss common issues and problems. PCAA gives support and strengthens families. It makes communities more aware of issues in our country that need to be addressed, but often difficult for them to bring up on their own.

The non profit does so much to build awareness of prevention of child abuse and neglect throughout the nation. Much help is also given to the different chapters from each state. Healthy Families America is a strong program of the non profit which helps young families and helps to strengthen the families.

Prevent Child Abuse America truly rate tops! Not belittling the efforts of any/all other organizations contributing to a better life for all children, the giant strides made over the years resonant throughout the world and so many organizations are adopting most of the programmes that work and change people's lives for better. The newsletters and continuous updates keep us abreast of developments in the mother land and encourage us to do better and better everyday despite the challenges we face everyday with funding since we can't expect people to donate their whole time for free. God willing we will succeed and become the top rated organization you are. Its a blessing for us to have a big sister organization that supports and encourages without fail! God bless you everyday! May you grow from strength to strength!! From Nosipho Matayi and team of Ephraim Home Network

I began my professional career as a Child Protective Services (CPS) worker and managed to do this work in New Jersey, Arizona and Ohio for 20 years. I thought the tragedy and pain would never end for the children and their parents. Over the years, I never saw a parent who was NOT in as much pain and suffering as their child(ren). Parents do not want to abuse their children. In 2005, I began working for HFA - working to prevent child abuse/neglect. Wow, what a concept and it really does work. Now, I am able to see joy and pride on the faces of parents and children. Parents are succeeding and achieving goals for themselves and their families.

I am a retired child welfare worker and I still believe that-Prevent Child Abuse is our nu 1 tool
to prevent Abuse and Neglect of Americas Children. Education of parents on parenting, giving support and tools to new and not so new parents is a great 1st step in prevention . providing education should not be limited to new parents but also to community enties who can act as support for families. I have served on death review teams and the lack of knowledge of a caregiver often contributes to death and injury of children . tips for choosing a caregiver can be a strong prevention also . do your part and join the prevention
partner in your town.

Raising awareness on topics such as: recognizing signs of abuse, behaviors of an adult who may pose a threat, and how to help are invaluable.
The knowledge and current information on this website, I find extremely accurate and helpful. I'd recommend it to anyone.
