Review for Prevent Child Abuse-New Jersey Chapter Inc, New Brunswick, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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

Raise additional funds to hire additional staff.
