Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina (PCANC) is the only statewide organization dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Through investment in innovative programs proven to prevent child maltreatment before it occurs, PCANC works with North Carolina’s communities to help build safe, stable, nurturing, and healthy relationships for all children.              

Please Note

Due to a dock workers strike at the port of Los Angeles in February, the national pinwheels order is still in Customs and may not be available to Prevent Child Abuse Chapters until May. We are unable to fill pinwheels orders until late May.

If you can, we encourage you to join us in a campaign to let folks know about the great prevention work going on year round in May. However, we understand that you may need your pinwheels before then. For more information, kdemers@preventchildabusenc.org.
