Our Mission

Mission

To prevent the abuse and neglect of all children in Pennsylvania before it happens.

Philosophy

We believe child abuse can and will be prevented when knowledgeable and involved citizens are aware of the work they can do to build healthy families and foster caring communities. Prevent Child Abuse Pennsylvania believes that primary prevention is a sound fiscal policy as well as a humane and caring response to the suffering of children. It is a simple, practical, cost-effective approach to protecting the welfare of our state's greatest resource – our children – and it is the right thing to do.

Core Values

  • Valuing children: We are committed to raising the value society places on children and to preventing abuse and neglect, so that all children can grow to their full potential. Every child deserves to be cherished and nurtured in a safe environment. Harming a child in any way is unacceptable.

  • Engaging communities: We are committed to engaging communities in the development and implementation of prevention strategies and programs.
