What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Child Abuse is a national epidemic impacting our communities most vulnerable population, our children. The Child Protection Center’s programs provide a comprehensive approach to prevent, intervene and treat child abuse. The Child Protection Team evaluates alleged child abuse and neglect, evaluates risk factors and provides recommendations for interventions. The Personal Safety and Community Awareness Program educates children and educates adults through presentations in schools and the community. When children’s safety is at a heightened risk due to parental substance abuse, domestic violence, or mental illness, the Children and Families Supervised Visitation Program provides a neutral, safe place for children to maintain a relationship with both parents. CPC’s Therapy Program provides treatment services for children who are victims of physical and sexual abuse.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Children and Families Supervised Visitation Program

The Children & Families Supervised Visitation Program provides supervised visits and monitored exchanges.  These services are designed so a child may have safe contact with an
absent parent without being put in the middle of adult conflict, with the potential to lead to dangerous situations.  This allows children to maintain a relationship with both
parents, reducing children’s stress and worry-in a
safe, comfortable environment.

CFSVP uses preventive
tactics for the safety of children and parents including, staggered arrival
times, the presence of an onsite uniformed officer, secured personal items (cell phone & keys), and screening of all packages. Conversation and behavior guidelines
are established prior to the visit. The child is monitored by a supervisor and
activities are documented. Precautions are taken to assure the exchange
eliminates parent or guardian contact.

The more than 50 supervisors are
volunteers who passed extensive background checks.Last year, 683 supervised visits were safely conducted, along with 52 safe exchanges.

Population(s) Served
Families

The Child Protection Team (CPT) is a medically directed multidisciplinary program based on the idea that child abuse and neglect cases involve complex issues and require the expertise of many professionals, in collaboration, to protect children. Florida Statute 39.303 mandates the existence of CPTs to provide assistance and consultation to DCF and law enforcement in cases of suspected abuse and neglect. This program provides expertise in evaluating allegations of abuse and neglect, assessing risk factors, and providing recommendations for interventions to protect children. Services include forensic medical assessments, forensic interviews, social history evaluations, and community service referrals. CPT provided direct intervention services to 793 children last year.   This included 345 medical assessments and 732 forensic and specialized interviews.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

The Child Protection Center provides therapy to children and families with two different approaches.  The Sexual Abuse Treatment Program (SATP) provides specialized treatment services for children who are victims of sexual abuse and for their families, recognizing that child abuse is traumatic for the entire family. Through a combination of group, family, and individual counseling for child sexual abuse survivors and their families, SATP works to reduce the trauma caused by child sexual victimization, prevent further victimization from occurring, and enable families to have healthy, non-abusive relationships. This program has recently been expanded to include children who have experienced the trauma of physical abuse.Additionally, the Kid Kindness Program (KKP) strives to change the lives of the most at-risk youth in our community by correcting patterns of behavior that hurt others. KKP takes proactive measures to reduce the growth of sexual abuse by equipping youth with healthy living skills while correcting misbehavior. The program offers comprehensive assessments and individual, group, and family therapy to those youth who have displayed at-risk or abuse-reactive behaviors.  Last fiscal year, 3,758 hours of individual, group, and family counseling were provided by the CPC clinical therapy team, this included 266 unduplicated clients receiving services.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

The Personal Safety and Community Awareness Program (PSCA) offers a holistic approach to the prevention of child abuse by promoting greater community awareness of the issue. PSCA provides primary abuse prevention education to children from preschool through high school. The program facilitates workshops for their caregivers, childcare professionals, teachers, school board staff and others throughout the community. The focus is the creation of a future in which children are empowered and educated, adults are aware and equipped, and our community is a safer place for children and families. PSCA conducted 1021 prevention workshops for 62,320 program participants last year.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To successfully address the issue of child abuse, efforts in prevention, intervention and treatment must be implemented. The unique comprehensive continuum of services developed over the more than thirty-nine year history of the Child Protection Center, Inc. exemplifies such an effort.

The Child Protection Center's Vision is to create a community where children are safe from abuse and free to thrive. We ultimately want to Break the Cycle of Abuse in families and prevent child abuse from ever happening. For those families that abuse has impacted them, we want to work with them guiding the victims of abuse from victim to survivor to one that thrives. For our families that need our Supervised Visitation Services, we want to provide a safe, neutral environment where children can reconnect with their parent.

Goal 1: Secure Necessary Funding to Increase Revenue by 10%
Goal 2: Deliver Consistent, Mission and Results-Driven Communication: Annual Report, & Monthly emails
Goal 3: Provide Quality Programs: Ensure Programs are relevant & staffed appropriately, Ensure adequate space for service delivery, staff retention & wellness
Goal 4: Strengthen the Structure and Function of the BOD to support the strategic plan.
