Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina's Prevention Network

Across North Carolina, families, citizens, volunteers, and professionals are working together to prevent child abuse and neglect. To facilitate and strengthen this collaborative work, Prevent Child Abuse will be launching the Prevention Network in September 2001. 

Our Vision 

The Prevention Network is a statewide network of child abuse prevention agencies and providers, advocates, and interested citizens who are committed to the prevention of child abuse in all its forms. The Network provides:

a collective voice for the prevention of child abuse in North Carolina

a forum for the exchange of information, current up-to-date research, and successful child abuse prevention strategies

an opportunity for networking among individuals committed to child abuse prevention

an opportunity for individuals and/or organizations to advocate for policies and programs that support healthy families and children

a way for citizens, practitioners and community-based agencies to provide substantive input to Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina’s goals and strategies.


Individuals, groups, organizations, and agencies can become part of the Prevention Network. Any agency, group or citizen that is committed to the prevention of child abuse in all its forms can become a member of the Prevention Network. There are three levels of membership. 


Individual Members: Individual members are concerned citizens, advocates and community members who support the work of child abuse prevention in North Carolina. If you are interested in becoming an individual member, please e-mail us at info@childabusenc.org

Organizational Members: Organizational members are agencies, organizations, and community groups who support the work of child abuse prevention in North Carolina. They are encouraged to provide some type of services – either direct or indirect – but are not required to do so to become an organizational member of the Prevention Network. If your group is interested in becoming an organizational member, please e-mail us at info@childabusenc.org

Affiliate Members (click to get more information): Affiliate members are non-profit organizations providing child abuse prevention services within a county. Affiliated organizations agree to serve as leaders within their county around child abuse prevention activities. Affiliates foster community involvement and ownership of child abuse prevention efforts, and serve as catalysts in developing and implementing programs and activities. Prevent Child Abuse recognizes only one Affiliate per county.
