Thank you for advocating for and giving a voice to children, supporting parents and making the public more aware of the needs of families! I love the Pinwheel Gardens! They became too expensive for us, so we started building Blue Ribbon Trees. Check them out at http://www.ok.gov/health/Organization/Office_of_Communications/News_Releases/2014_News_Releases/Build_a_Blue_Ribbon_Tree_State.html

As a professional working with children who have experienced child abuse, I have relied heavily on the Prevent Child Abuse network for information and support. Each year, our agency hosts a Pinwheel garden for the month of April and get the families we serve involved in bringing home the pinwheels. Thank you for all the efforts to making families stronger.

Webinars such as these provide a wealth of information while allowing easy access to workers in the field. Having this easy access provides additional education opportunities without having to decrease family visits. What a win-win situation for everyone! This was a great webinar to identify child abuse injuries. It provided multiple examples pictures and an opportunity to ask questions to the speaker. The Speaker was very knowledgeable. I look forward to viewing more in the future.

I work with Healthy Families America. I love and value the contributions Prevent Child Abuse America has on Healthy Families. I strongly believe in the focus and mission of Prevent Child Abuse. I work directly with families that are at a high risk of abusing or neglecting their children due to the trauma that the parents may have faced as children themselves. I believe this organization changes the lives of children and families every day. I know they do because of what I do day to day. I am proud to be associated with such an amazing organization with such a clear mission.

I am very aware of many charities and their efforts; however supporting PCAA is so different. You are supporting programs and people who work with children who do not have a voice of their own. What could be more gratifying than speaking out/up for those who cannot and may never be given the chance to speak until they are older and in charge of their own lives? Children are dependent on others to set the stage for their life's beginning--lets make sure every child has a beginning that is worth while and excellent! Julia Marynus

I worked as a Family Advocate with the Head Start Program in Pennsylvania for 17 years. I was introduced to the important work done by Prevent Child Abuse America when I attended a Child Abuse Prevention conference In Alabama. The commitment, passion, and dedication of the representatives of Prevent Child Abuse America touched me deeply. As a survivor, a parent, a grandparent, and as an advocate who regularly dealt with the impact of abuse of the children with whom I worked, I am grateful to PCAA for all they do. After that conference years ago I returned to work wanting more than ever to help make a difference. I developed a training for other Family Advocates to help share information I learned from PCAA.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure they had all the funding they need to reach even more people and touch even more lives.

I have had the pleasure of involvement with Prevent Child Abuse America ( PCAA ) for over a decade. I am the Executive Director of a state NGO and have consistently valued the leadership that PCAA has demonstrated in program development; advocacy/public policy; messaging and research.

I currently serve as a volunteer in the capacity of a peer review for organizations in the PCAA network. In that effort, I understand now, more clearly the national leadership role that PCAA has assumed to shape stronger communities, support families, raising thriving children. -Pat Cronin

More resources to provide leadership to all child abuse prevention organizations
