Imagine if there was an organization that was entirely focused on the needs and interests of American children.

Imagine if that organization served as a platform giving American children a voice.

The AmericanSPCC is that organization. They are creating solutions to the problems facing far too many American children.

I hope others will come together and support this growing community in whatever ways they can.

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.

I came across the American SPCC on Facebook and have read a lot of the information that they share on-line. I have learned so much more about what constitutes child abuse and they are actively working to use education and tools to tackle it at from many different angles: parenting, schools, peer to peer etc.
I like that they are focusing on solutions and change and I look forward to being able to participate in their organization.

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.

I'm very proud to have helped Lietta and her team for this great cause. However this is a non profit outside my own region (the Netherlands), this doesn't matter; unfortunately child bullying and abuse is very real; also in the Netherlands, in my own town. As a father of 2 I feel very committed helping American SPCC gain more attention and helping them where I can (in the field of building awareness online). All the best from Amsterdam, Raoul

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.

I am a policy specialist and have served as a consultant for American SPCC for the last several months. I can report that American SPCC offers numerous avenues for those interested in the welfare of children, adolescents, and older youth to at once get involved and be part of the solution. American SPCC prioritizes the perspectives of young people, and I particularly appreciate the student advocacy model and toolkit that this nonprofit provides for students to assist them with identifying and advocating on behalf of the child welfare issues that matter most to them. American SPCC has both a national vision and a very hands-on ground effort working closely to assist and support child welfare advocates in the Portland, Oregon, community. This is a small nonprofit that has tremendous potential for growth.

American SPCC offers a wide variety of educational and advocacy opportunities for parents/caretakers and youth. Youth can identify issues important to them in high school and college clubs, and earn service credit from American SPCC for attempting to make improvements in their community.

Parents and caretakers are able to access a wide variety of topics for guidance. For example, new parents can learn tips on how to remain cool while learning and utilizing strategies to calm a crying infant, and helplines are given a when a caregiver feels overwhelmed. In addition, children, teens and caregivers can learn strategies to deal with bullying at school and in their community, and learn how identify, reach out and obtain help if they feel depressed or suicidal.

American SPCC has a pro-active approach to dealing with the challenges that children, youth, parents and caregivers commonly face. Its' solution-focused, hands-on strategies are empowering and effective.

American SPCC offers holistic approaches to addressing child abuse, neglect and exploitation, which cause so many of our social and economic problems. The organization's focus on solutions--positive parenting, anti-bullying, and advocacy--both in the community and through social media networks is unique. So is their model of supporting students and youth in working to solve problems in their communities through high school, college, and community clubs while earning service credit hours and other awards.

I have worked on children's rights in many arenas but have finally found a forum that allows children and youth to find a way to envision and create a more positive future for themselves and the next generation. Please join me in supporting their work!

I am honored to be associated and working with this great nonprofit, American SPCC (American Society for the Positive Care of Children). They are an amazing organization with huge goals and a vast vision to actualize positive social change as it relates to all areas of children's rights, child abuse, neglect, maltreatment and bullying.

They are devoted to building an active, caring community advocating for children’s rights and the welfare of families by increasing awareness of child abuse, promoting positive parenting, encouraging social reform, and offering anti-bullying strategies.

I fully support this charity and their mission, and highly recommend that others do the same! www.americanspcc.org
