Child Abuse
Prevention Council


The mission of Placer County Child Abuse Prevention Council is for every child in Placer County to have a safe place to live and grow.


National Child Abuse Prevention Month is an opportunity to share the importance of individuals and communities working together to keep families safe and healthy. Everyone has a role to play in making sure that our community is a great place for children and families to thrive. There are simple steps we can take every day to help reduce the risk factors of child abuse and neglect. When the well-being of children and families becomes the priority of everyone in a community, child abuse and neglect cases will decrease.

Prevention through Collaboration

The Child Abuse Prevention Council and Support Systems in Placer County know we are stronger working together. Our strength comes in numbers. Please join our collaboration and help build protective factors to provide our children and families a safe and nurturing community to thrive and grow!
