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 25 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.
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 that began January 1, 2019, using feedback from the Advisory Board, local councils, and partnering organizations. While the first 6 years of our work focused on strengthening our infrastructure and relaunching the 1-800-CHILDREN Helpline, in the next three years we will focus on strengthening our local councils, so that we have a stronger statewide prevention network.
