Mission

Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina is the only statewide nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention of child maltreatment.  Its mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect by supporting the development of safe, stable, nurturing relationships for children in their families and communities.

Notes from the nonprofit

To improve outcomes for North Carolina children, we provide quality, intensive workforce development in coaching and ongoing technical assistance support to community-based agencies delivering Circle of Parents, The Incredible Years, Strengthening Families Program 6-11, and beginning in spring 2018, Triple P (Positive Parenting Program). These programs are implemented in agencies around the state and primarily serve low-income families. Triple P takes a population-level public health approach to parenting supports which makes it available to virtually all families across NC.
Additionally, we provide oversight and capacity, building support for the Prevention Network and providing trainings to enhance professionals' understanding and knowledge of effective prevention practice.

Implementation Support for Prevention Programs

Across North Carolina, providers are implementing programs to meet this need. These programs offer strategies for handling parenting challenges, while providing opportunities for parents to connect with one another for support.

To truly have an impact on child abuse and neglect, it is crucial that these programs are implemented effectively. Research shows that programs are most effective when providers receive regular on-going support. Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina (PCANC) provides support to communities implementing four evidence based/evidence informed parenting program models:

Circle of Parents: Mutual self-help support group model grounded in parent leadership and the five protective factors providing a space where anyone in a parenting role can come together to openly discuss successes and challenges of raising children.

Incredible Years: Group-based, collaborative approach to prevent and treat young children’s behavior problem and promote their social, emotional and acad

Connections Matter is a community-based initiative that explores how the connections we make in life profoundly impact the brain’s ability to grow and our own individual abilities to cope and thrive. Through our workshops and trainings, we educate the public on the intersecting topics of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), trauma, brain development, and resilience. We utilize an evidence-informed program, along with real-world and concrete examples, to demonstrate how ACEs adversely affect brain development and health outcomes – and how caring connections serve as a primary buffer in the negative effects of trauma. Connections Matter ultimately strives to promote the building of more resilient, compassionate, and trauma-informed communities – thus allowing all children and individuals to succeed.
