We protect children by preventing childhood trauma; this significantly reduces taxpayer burdens.


Our website is the most popular website focused on preventing ACEs. We ignite conversations by briefing the media. Our state chapters work with legislators across the country. Our first bill was introduced in Hawaii this year. It will be introduced in several more states next year. Visit our media page on our website to get a view of where we have been making an impact. We are building two community improvement projects where focused improvements in public policy can substantially eliminate child maltreatment.

Target demographics:


Direct beneficiaries per year:

All children are at risk of child maltreatment. 66% in the US suffer enough childhood trauma to be permanently harmed.

Geographic areas served:

Across the United States


The Stop Abuse Campaign prevents Adverse Childhood Experiences through public policy and public education. The US chooses to spend huge sums of money dealing with the consequences of abuse, like health and criminal justice costs. But the CDC's Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study proves that abuse cannot be undone. Fortunately, a lot is known about preventing abuse. And preventing abuse is what we do at the Stop Abuse Campaign. Come and say hello. Visit our website.

When my contentious divorce began in 2006, I knew I was in for a landslide. I was resourceful and sought out any references or help I could find, and I came upon Women of Lost Children organization and, even though homeless at the time, I managed to attend a conference in Washington DC. I was very very confused and broken at the time from emotional and financial abuse that my husband of 14 years (as we developed a national company together) and his company did onto me. I spiraled down for years because of this emotional abuse. He had tried to take power and control over my life throughout the second half of the marriage, and extended post-divorce, to financial ruin (hidden stock assets actually), until I was jailed (for "harassment" he says - trying to contact my children 'too many times."), homeless for 2 years, committed to a hospital for anxiety (now PTSD). I am now recovering to the point where I am attempting to seek all retributions and obtain fair justice. I wish I this bill would have been available and hope that it will for others in the near future. I support it fully.

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

Be able to help (finance) specific cases, maybe a couple, or a few at a time that have had severe abuse and the hope of retribution asap.

I have worked as a consultant and adviser to many nonprofit organizations over a 30 year period. The Stop Abuse Campaign, in my observation, is uniquely well run, organized, efficient, and mission-focused. And of course, the most important point: the organization prevents and protects children from abuse by educating and informing public awareness and policy. Truly, the Stop Abuse Campaign is doing heroic work, and doing it very well.
