Welcome

Child Abuse Prevention Month Reimagined

Our collective efforts to raise awareness of effective child maltreatment prevention efforts and empower North Carolinians are as vital as ever.

Let’s Make Prevention a Priority.

Advocating for prevention. Building community capacity. Raising awareness. Prevent Child Abuse NC ensures that prevention is a priority in North Carolina and that all communities have the knowledge, skills, and resources to prevent child abuse and neglect at the local level.

Online Trainings

We encourage all NC citizens and professionals can take our free, online trainings: What is Prevention? and Recognizing & Responding to Suspicions of Child Maltreatment. 

Prevention Action Network

An affiliation of agencies and individuals invested in developing strong families, supportive communities and improved outcomes for NC’s children.

Recognizing & Reporting Child Maltreatment

North Carolina law requires all adults to report suspected child maltreatment.

Connections Matter NC

By building supportive, resilient communities, we’re creating strong foundations for healthy brain development.
