PCA-NJ is a much needed organization that works to prevent child abuse for all of New Jersey's children. With professional and dedicated staff the agency works collaboratively with state and local programs to educate, inform and increase awareness of child abuse prevention, child development, positive parenting, parenting engagement and healthy family functioning. It's an excellent organization that needs to continue to lead the movement against child abuse in New Jersey!

This organization serves the state of New Jersey by helping to ensure that children can grow up happy, healthy, and safe. They provide technical assistance to a number of home, school, and daycare visiting programs, and they also help to promote awareness through various programs such as Enough Abuse and the Period of PURPLE Crying. The staff members of PCA-NJ are highly skilled, educated, and professional. They are always improving on their approach and taking on new research-based initiatives to help in their goal to prevent child abuse and neglect in the state of New Jersey.

Prevent Child Abuse NJ is an amazing organization that works to prevent child abuse & neglect for all New Jersey's children. I find their programs to be really effective and the agency staff is always very passionate and committed to the cause. Their newest initiative, the PURPLE program, helps educate parents of newborns in hospitals about infant crying and safe ways to cope. They even have a campaign to knit cute purple caps for babies to promote community support and involvement!

Prevent Child Abuse NJ (PCANJ) does such fantastic work in preventing child abuse and neglect and have been doing so for over 30 years. My experience with this agency shows me people dedicated and willing to go above and beyond to help all the children of NJ. From helping at risk families with home visiting to training teachers, coaches, parents, students on warning signs and dangers to helping new families adjust to having a newborn in the home, PCA NJ is the leader on prevent abuse and neglect before it occurs. Keep up the fabulous and much needed work!

PCA-NJ has worked for more than 30 years to keep children in New Jersey safe. Last year they provided services to more 38,000 families statewide! PCA-NJ operates on a budget where $0.92 of every $1.00 donated is devoted directly to program services. They don't wait for abuse to occur, they stop it from every happening!

PCA-NJ prevents abuse by:

1. Training teachers, social workers, law enforcement, parents and daycare workers on the signs of “grooming” by child sexual offenders before abuse occurs.

2. Working with families who have been impacted by the downturn in the economy (loss of jobs, foreclosed homes etc.) to find jobs and cope with these types of stressors before abuse occurs.

3. Going into homes in impoverished areas and those impacted by Hurricane Sandy to connect families to needed resources such as food, clothing and linkages to services before abuse occurs.

4. Preparing the professionals who meet with new and expectant parents in health care clinics to screen for substance abuse and to connect families to treatment services so that they are fully capable of nurturing their babies before abuse occurs.

If you enter foster care abuse or psychotropic drug abuse foster care in the search engine, you'll see that foster children are 10 times likely to be abused and 4 times likely to be drugged on psychotropic drugs like 3-year-old Rachel from Texas and 7-year-old Gabriel from Florida who committed suicide from overdosing on depressants.

I passed out flyers in Minnesota to get public awareness for Representative Dan Severson's failed bill on judicial corruption concerning abuse and drugging of foster children. What I'm trying to accomplish in Washington, is to get Congressman Jim McDermott's constituents to call him (206) 553-1809and tell him to reintroduce his InvestinKids Act attempting to restrict drug companies from bribing caregivers to over medicate foster children, causing them heart attacks, strokes, and death, and to call the committee members who tabled his bill and tell them to either renter the motion themselves or support his efforts next session, and contact Senator Akaka (202) 224-6361 senator@akaka.senate.gov who is still gathering data to see if this is a problem and tell him that he has enough data. Enough children are dead.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

This organization has done it's best to help foster children, but not enough in the line of stopping them from being overmedicated or monitoring caregivers enough to prevent abuse.

Ways to make it better...

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

Please do something for foster care reform. Agencies don't get funding if it gets out that children are being abused. Parents who protest are silenced.
