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.

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.

I am a retired professional that taught Early Child Development and during my tenure so appreciated Prevent Child Abuse America and the information and training that the organization afforded me. I feel my role was made more visible with the population I served because of PCAA's advertising and public posture.

Keep up the good work and it is great to see billboards with positive info regarding parenting. It is the everyday info that impacts citizens and keeps awareness in the fore front.

I became aware of Prevent Child Abuse America about three years ago. The problem of abused children seemed to be growing and I wondered how an individual can make a dent in the problem. That's when I discovered there is this national organization dedicated to stopping abuse before it happens. It seemed all I ever heard about in the news was that a judge sentenced someone for beating a child—sometimes within an inch of its life. I asked myself, isn't there a way to get to theses people before they abuse their child? Prevent Child Abuse America was the perfect answer to identifying at-risk families and taking action before any harm was done.

Keep up the good work, and congratulations for reaching all 50 states.
