Education and Prevention

National Child Abuse Prevention Month

During the month of April and throughout the year, the Child Advocacy Center of Niagara encourages all organizations and individuals to play a role in making the Niagara community a better place for children and families. By ensuring that parents have the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to care for their children, we can help prevent child abuse and neglect.

There are many ways you can help! Child Advocacy Center staff can provide educational programming to your organization on a wide range of topics related to child safety and child abuse. Presentations can be customized to meet your organization’s needs. All programs are free of charge.

Review the resources on this website, including the resources for families and children.

Reach out to families and children. These factors promote healthy families:

  • Nurturing and attachment
  • Knowledge of parenting and of child and youth development
  • Parental resilience
  • Social connections
  • Concrete supports for parents
  • Social and emotional competence of children.
