Supporting Parents
Leads to Happy Children
and Healthy Families

Solvable issues like poverty, inadequate childcare, racism and other real-life challenges can stand in the way of parents being the best parent they can be. Supporting parents so they’re not overloaded with stress can reduce childhood adversity and lead to happier children and healthier families. Child abuse seems big, but prevention is possible.

For 50 years, Prevent Child Abuse America has worked to provide parents and caregivers with the support they need to parent better.

You can make a difference in the life of children and families

in Chicago and across the nation.
