I would like to commend Prevent Child Abuse America for the work they are doing to help
the situation of child abuse. We have used the pinwheel in our organization and am proud
to say that I have a pinwheel pin which I wear in my own town, our State and at our
National Conventions to show that I believe in the work of Prevent Child Abuse America
and the things they are accomplishing.

I am a student at the University of Washington and had the project of choosing a type of organization for a cause. My first choice was Prevent Child Abuse America due to my interest in helping children with history of abuse. As I learned more about the organization I saw how invested they are not just into children but all ages and incidents ranging from sexual abuse to bullying. They will be receiving a donation

PCAA has always been supportive of the Child Abuse Prevention Efforts I have been involved in, especially the Voices program. I have worked in conjunction with PCAA in the past and although I have moved to another area, I continue to follow and support their efforts at every opportunity. I am pleased with the continuation and increased awareness of the PinWheel Gardens and am extremely pleased that every state in the union has a PCA office. I am a Child Advocate and Speaker as a Survivor of Child Abuse and PCAA has always been my "go to" for accurate and up-to-date figures and information regarding this epidemic. I continue to be pleased they remain a leader in this movement. I will continue to support their work and efforts at every opportunity and I urge anyone I come into contact with to do so as well.

Prevent Child Abuse America is a wonderful organization. It is a Godsend to America's children. I am so thankful that they are out there every day advocating for children in our country. They are bringing more awareness to the public than has ever been done and are so very devoted to America's children. God bless you all for the hard work and untold hours you work to protect this country's precious little ones! Thank you so very much!!!

I work at a Child Abuse Prevention Center in North Carolina. I was very abused by 3 family members in my childhood and would have given anything if Prevent Child Abuse America or the organization I work for had been around when I was enduring that abuse. Children who are dealing with and enduring abuse do not have a VOICE, these organizations can step in and be the voice for today's children. I am so very proud to be a part of this and I now issue a challenge to all who read this: Be the adult and step up for these children. Do not sit in the comfort of your home and pretend that it does not happen in your own town, in your own neighborhood. Do not be the Ostrich with your head in the sand and think, "If I don't see it, it doesn't exist." It does exist and it is not pretty. We as adults have to stand up for today's children and very loudly declare, "ENOUGH! STOP CHILD ABUSE NOW!"

In 2013, 24 of North Carolina's children died from abuse and neglect at the hands of their parent/caregiver. Please support these wonderful folks in their efforts to end this suffering!

Prevent Child abuse America, in my experience, is doing a fantastic job at creating awareness and positive outlets for children and families in awareness against child abuse. As one of the most difficult subjects to talk about, PCAA makes awareness fun! I recently helped volunteer at an event in Utah with Pro-Ultramarathon Runner Chad Weller spoke to a group of children that fall into the high statics of child abuse in the nation. Children who have suffered from child abuse might have issues with self confidence and trust. Chad spoke to the children about exercise and nutrition, highlighting his experience of running 100miles and the empowering massage that anything is possible! Creating awareness of the silent issue and also positive messaging to children and families is the best way to change lives. I am proud to be a volunteer of Prevent Child Abuse America and continue spreading this good work.

I am so happy to see the use of technology spear heading our fight against child abuse and neglect. The knowledge and information that you are sharing is invaluable.

Several years ago, I reported (anonymously), a child was being abused by their parents. Shortly thereafter, the child wasn't there anymore & I assumed it was from that call I'd made. About a year later, the couple sold their house & property & moved on. Being a child abuse survivor, I'm always on the lookout for such situations that "might be" suspicious. I want to write a book about my childhood & get involved in the Child Abuse Organization. This MUST stop immediately!

I have been involved with Prevent Child Abuse America for some time. My son and I was in a violent situation for five years and when I got us out I got involved in many and this is the one that gave me the most information on what to do. This is the best organization that really helps kids out if they know about the abuse and what is going on.

Years ago when Prevent Child Abuse America was known as the National Committee to Prevent Child Abuse, I had the honor to serve as a spokesperson for the Arizona Chapter. I am still in contact with the Arizona Chapter and am proud to spread the message of Prevent Child Abuse America regularly. I have a year round Pinwheel Garden in my yard and it helps encourage conversations with all my neighbors which leads to awareness...all because of the great messages Prevent Child Abuse America sends. There programs are effective and informative. If it was possible, I'd give them more than 5 stars!

This past summer, I was an intern in the Chicago office of PCAA. Having worked there now, I can absolutely say this is a top organization. The staff are incredibly dedicated and the leadership is phenomenal. PCAA was so appreciative of all of the interns' help and made sure that we were happy above all else.

After college, I volunteered my time while I was looking for a full-time position. It was great experience for me and the people I worked with were great. They truly helped expand my knowledge and skills to better myself in the workplace. I was always excited to come to work and throughly felt I was a contributing member to the team. The office is very friendly and passionate about what they do. It was great to attend a fundraising event that I helped coordinate and truly see how much the general public cares for their cause. I had a great time working for them and would do it again in a heart beat! I wish I had more time to continue volunteering there, but I know I will always stay in touch and help out whenever needed. They stand for a great cause and I wish more people knew about what they do!

I am passionate about Child abuse prevention and Child Protection. I managed the Child Protection program with the California Department of Justice. In 2007 I produced a report on the efficacy of the program that clearly showed that the incidents of Child Abuse in California that are substantiated are reported to the Chikdl Abuse Central Index (CACI in less than 20% of the cases. My attempts to bring about reform were met with absolute resistance by ever stake holder from private non profits to the State Legislature to the Department of Social Services to to the Attorney General (Jerry Brown). The "Stake Holders" are opnly interested in enhancing their own bureacracy and care little about actually providing protection for Children. If anyone in your organizartion or anyone reading this is interested in my documentation let me know. From my view millions is spent and virtually nothing accomplished. The outcome is by design. I have no direct experience with your oprganization but sp[ent 3 years and an enormous amount of personal time and accomplished nothing

PCA staff were knowledgeable and passionate about the work they do. It was easy to want to get involved and to want to stay involved since the cause was good and events being carried out were helpful and relevant to communities. There are many ways to get involved and they will value your time.

PCAA is an amazing organization that has helped so many children. They are involved in so many levels of prevention unlike others that just focus on one step of the resolution. They teach their volunteers to grow also so we can continue the progress even when we are going through our normal daily tasks.
