Evidenced-Informed Program Proven to Increase Knowledge

EDUCATION IS THE KEY TO ENDING THE CYCLE OF CHILD ABUSE.

With the knowledge that 1 in 10 children will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday, it is important to learn how to help protect the children in our community. At the Center for Child Protection, we believe one of the most proactive and pragmatic approaches to preventing child sexual abuse is through education.
Our team helps adults start the discussion, feel empowered, set standards, recognize the need for prevention and gives adults the knowledge of responsibility to report. Prevention is our top priority so it’s our mission to give you the tools needed to take your prevention strategies to the next level.
