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 did some browsing on their informative website prior to a fundraiser. Turns out I learn even more and through amazing stories. Personally compelling and grateful to understand this organization in person. Listening to some staff members and talking with the CEO. I was grateful to have a productive conversation and feel welcome to get invovled. A very approachable organization.

I am a retired teacher, and throughout my 30 year career, I taught preschool through to fifth grade. After disclosures from students or behaviors from families, I became involved with many abused children. When I learned about Prevent Child Abuse America, I decided to be a donor. Giving children a voice, supporting parents & making the public more aware of the needs of families, is so critical in the prevention of child abuse. I urge more donors to support this important charity.

As an incest survivor, Prevent Child Abuse America is an organization that touched my heart a decade ago. At the time, I was writing articles on the recovery from child abuse, for an on-line blog. I wrote over 70 articles. During that time Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina invited me to read my poem, I Am The Child at the 6th Annual Child Abuse Homicide Victims Candlelight Vigil in Raleigh, NC on Friday September 28th, 2001. I was honored to accept that invitation. That poem was also used in the Johnson County, North Carolina Child Abuse Prevention Task Force’s Blue Ribbon For Kids Campaign. That night changed my life. I knew then that I could make a difference with my writing and poetry. That was when I became a donor.

Since then I've had other poems about child abuse published. My sonnet Fatal Hand was published in the 2000 Quarterly Journal of the Wisconsin Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Kelly Wallace of Ball State University used my poems Flight Plans and Trespasser in a Sexual Abuse Group as therapy hand-outs. In August of 2006, Corinne Henderson-Mental Health Coordinating Council (MHCC) of Sydney, Australia, corinne@mhcc.org.au , stated that they used my poems; Musical Lobotomy and Trespasser on page #1 of their Professional Report: “Reframing Responses-Improving Service Provision to Women Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse who experience Mental Health Problems.” because “they so succinctly reflect the pain and trauma experienced by adult survivors of childhood abuse.

So it is with great pleasure that I will continue to support Prevent Child Abuse America.

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

Make a commercial about child abuse prevention to be shown all across America. You could even get survivors to be in the commercials.

I was introduced to PCA and their staff several years ago. I was impressed with the passion in which the PCA employees had toward the mission. We recently had PCA executives out to our office to further explain to our employees PCA's mission and how we can help. Our staff was very impressed and many now support the wonderful cause.
