The Child Abuse Prevention Center’s 15 different programs are designed to work with each family’s unique needs and ensure that children are living in violence-free homes. Our program goals are to directly serve those in need, reach those we can engage in our work, and teach those whom we cannot directly serve.

 “Serve” Programs

  • Infant – We serve high-risk families with infants in order to strengthen bonding, attachment, and self-sufficiency.
  • Toddler – We serve high-risk families with toddlers in order to promote positive parenting, positive behavior, and positive relationships.
  • Coach – We serve families suspected of abuse in order to prevent future abuse by coaching families to a healthier place.
  • In-Home Mental Health – We bring mental health support to isolated parents in order to enable the parent to meet the needs of their children.
  • Children’s In-Home Crisis Stabilization – We serve suicidal and homicidal children who can’t be hospitalized in order to diffuse the crisis, promote a healthy family, prevent suicide, and keep the family unit together.
