Child Abuse & Neglect Prevention
These services protect children and youth by preventing maltreatment or intervening quickly to help kids heal.
In just one year, nearly 80,000 California children are confirmed victims of child abuse and neglect. Among those, ten percent will experience further maltreatment within a year. The consequences are severe. By age 21, eight in ten young adults who were abused as kids experience depression, anxiety, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress or other mental health challenges.
