Our Approach

Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina (PCANC) is the leading statewide nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing child abuse and neglect. Through collaboration with partners across North Carolina, PCANC works with communities to build safe, stable, nurturing relationships for all children.

We invest in prevention by supporting and scaling evidence-based programs grounded in implementation science and best practices; building community will through partnership engagement and communications; and, through a commitment to policies supporting children and families across the state.

The Upstream Solution

When we go upstream and invest in proven strategies that help strengthen families, we prevent child abuse and neglect before it even happens. That’s why we work to build safe, stable, nurturing homes and communities with our partners! We encourage you to watch and share this video!
