Prevent Child Abuse Oregon promotes the healthy development of children and the prevention of child abuse and neglect before it can occur in order to help all of Oregon’s children to thrive and contribute in their communities. We work every day to promote the kind of strategies and activities that make a difference amongst our most vulnerable populations in communities across the state.
We believe we can be most effective for children and families through collaboration. We support child and family service programs, policies, and initiatives that are proven to help prevent all types of child abuse and neglect, especially among our most vulnerable populations in Oregon’s communities.
We know that we can do better as a state, because a focus on innovative and needed services lays the foundation for children’s growth and development that reduces the later possibility of more serious problems from occurring. We all have a role to play in the prevention of child abuse and neglect. You can be a partner in providing great childhoods for all children, whether by mentoring a child or parent, advocating for family friendly policies, or donating your time or money to Prevent Child Abuse Oregon.
