Every five minutes

a child is
abused or neglected in North Carolina

        In about half of the cases, these children understand abuse before they learn to read.

         25-40 children die each year in North Carolina as a result of abuse.

         Almost all criminals report having been abused as children.

         More than 120,000 children are reported to authorities each year in our state.

         85% of the time the perpetrator of child abuse and neglect is a biological parent.

         Parents who were abused as children are six times more likely to abuse their own kids.

         Abuse and neglect do not discriminate by social, economic or ethnic background.

Together, we can stop it.

We can stop child abuse. We know how.  Help us to protect North Carolinas kids by offering all parents in our state the option of receiving preventative services, either in their home or through community-based prevention efforts.

Working together for kids, families and communities

Effective child abuse prevention must be woven into the fabric of our communitiesinto the structure of our schools, hospitals, places of work, communities of faith, and day care facilities.  Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina is leading the effort to prevent abuse before it happens by developing family-oriented, community-based prevention, awareness, education, and training programs.
