THE WORK OF PRIMARY PREVENTION

 

Prevent Child Abuse New York is the only private, nonprofit agency serving the entire state whose single mission is to prevent child abuse in all its forms. Our work is centered in prevention and, in particular, in those programs that address problems before they ever occur. This is referred to as “primary prevention.”

 

We remove barriers to healthy parenting through public awareness; training & technical assistance; and policy work & advocacy. Through our work we support the healthy development and prosperity of New York's children, families, and communities, since preventing child abuse often happens at the community level.

 

A strong, supportive community that values parenting and families makes a safe and healthy environment for kids. And parents who know they have support and access to resources are better parents.

A strong community helps parents learn, supports them and reduces stress through programs and services that emphasize Protective Factors.

We invite you to learn more about our work of strengthening families, because we all have a part to play in prevention.

Stronger Families. Safer Kids. Successful Communities.
