As a parent, I've always felt the need to reach out and help where I can but never knew how, or where to start. But with American SPCC I feel like I'm helping change the world. It has great programs and tons of information, and I know when I share the knowledge I gained through their Learning Center or donate I'm really helping someone in turn.

American SPCC is a unique community and family-oriented organization. My first experience with American SPCC was in October 2020 for the Preventing Cyberbullying month webinar. The hosts, the parents, participants, and the entire American SPCC community were engaged and inspiring. The American SPCC website is full of resources, the membership is engaging, and the mission is incredible. Thanks for the amazing work, and check out the website. https://americanspcc.org/

Working alongside American SPCC in an advisor role has not only been wonderful in terms of our collaboration, but fulfilling on a personal level as well. Getting a first-hand understanding of the incredible cause their team passionately progresses every single day is both inspiring and eye-opening. As an nonprofit organization, American SPCC believes that eliminating child abuse is a journey we must take together and actively involves the community, parents, caregivers, and child-facing organizations to join them in their important mission - providing the essential life-saving tools and leadership needed to drive this change.

As a local volunteer, who encounters many victims of child abuse, I greatly appreciate organizations like this who provide practical resources and activities. Children are often silent victims for many years, but empowering them gives them the strength and courage to not give up. I also find the children videos on JW.org particularly helpful in teaching children about predators and how to report them. The website can be translated into any language needed. I have attached the video frame for reference.

Let’s keep protecting the future!

The reason I love this charity is because they are very forward thinking in their approach to getting information out there. They actually provide on their website, pre-made memes, and all the instructions on how you would share them on your own social media. They have a wealth of resources and information that has been collected and put in one location for easy access for anyone who needs help. Lastly they are focused on finding solutions from the youth of today. This is highly effective for 2 reasons: young people know best how to communicate to their peers and have new fresh ideas and also they are going to be the next generation of parents, so raising their awareness of the issue of Child Abuse is taking a pro active and hopefully preventative stance.

American SPCC continues to be on the forefront of providing valuable resources for all of us to utilize. Abuse in our country is staggering, especially abuse of children, it is everywhere. The information ASPCC provides helps us recognize possible abuse, helps us decide what to do and assists those suffering from abuse. This is a difficult and often complex subject. We are very fortunate to have the American Society for Positive Child Care tirelessly working to help all of us help each other. ASPCC consistently provides quality up to date information and support services options. I am a proud supporter of the ASPCC.

This non profit is taking a two-pronged approach to the issue of Child Abuse. First it aims to educate us on what Child Abuse encompasses: it may not look like what you think it does, and may be happening without you recognizing the signs. Second, they are focusing on the positive care of children. What would help parents, foster parents, care workers, etc alleviate the problem, what are solutions, how do we all help.
By harnessing the youth of today to help spread the word, they are making the next generation of parents aware of child abuse and neglect, what can cause it, what good parenting actually is, BEFORE they have children of their own.
