About Prevent Child Abuse Georgia
As the state chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America, Prevent Child Abuse (PCA) Georgia provides statewide direction to build safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments to prevent child abuse and neglect and has over 35 local councils located throughout the state who advocate and implement prevention practices in their communities. PCA Georgia is applying an intentional equity and racial justice lens to our work. A child’s race, ethnicity, gender, family income, or neighborhood should not predict their future success and well-being.
PCA Georgia is housed at Georgia State University and is a vital unit of the Mark Chaffin Center for Healthy Development in the School of Public Health.
All children and families thrive in safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments.
To prevent the abuse and neglect of Georgia’s children through education, advocacy and the promotion of evidence-based prevention strategies.
Prevent Child Abuse (PCA) Georgia updated their three year strategic plan, 2022 – 2024, using feedback from the Advisory Board, local councils, and partnering organizations. In the next three years PCA Georgia will focus on resource development, strengthening our local councils, and building a stronger statewide prevention network.
In 2021, PCA Georgia successfully completed the rigorous re-chartering processes conducted by Prevent Child Abuse America. View press release.

“Now more than ever, we need to band together in collective ways that help our families and children thrive. Too often, our society thinks of raising healthy children as a parent or caregiver’s responsibility alone. In reality, we all benefit when groups of people work together to collectively care for children.”
Research shows that positive childhood experiences grow thriving families and communities. This is the moment to build a child and family well-being system that propels families to grow and thrive together. Please join us to ensure safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments are cultivated to enable children, families, and entire communities to succeed – today and for generations to come.” – Jennifer Stein, Executive Director
