Anaheim, CA. (October 17, 2017)— The Orange County Child Abuse Prevention Center is proud to announce a grant from Edward Lifesciences Foundation in the amount of $5,000 for the Center’s Home Visitation programs.
The Child Abuse Prevention Center Home Visitation programs provide no-cost services to families directly in their homes – eliminating barriers to care due to social and linguistic isolation, as well as lack of transportation. In addition to parent education, families receive critical connections to community resources, like medical, housing, and basic needs, to foster self-sufficiency and a continued network of care. The model for the programs reflects best practices in child abuse prevention; according to Prevent Child Abuse America, “home visitation is the most innovative and holistic prevention program used in approaching the difficulties of educating and supporting the at-risk family.” Together, the Child Abuse Prevention Center’s Home Visitation programs served over 2,200 participants during the last year.
“We are grateful that Edward Lifesciences Foundation has continued their partnership with us to help the most vulnerable residents of Orange County, and ensure they receive positive parenting and proper care,” says Scott Trotter, Executive Director of the Child Abuse Prevention Center.
