At Prevent Child Abuse Pennsylvania, we are committed to a single goal - raising happy, healthy kids.
It's good for everyone - for parents, for neighborhoods, and for communities.
Prevent Child Abuse Pennsylvania, a program of the PA Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics, is one of 50 state chapters of Prevent Child Abuse America. Our first organizational meeting was held in 2009 and we have been a Chartered Chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America since 2010.
With the mission of preventing the abuse and neglect of all children in Pennsylvania before it happens, we seek to work in collaboration with a rich array of local and statewide efforts to develop an approach to child abuse prevention that is locally based and statewide in coverage.

HOW TO REPORT CHILD ABUSE
If you suspect a child is being abused or neglected, make it your responsibility to report it. Reporting or admitting abuse does not destroy a family - it gets family members the help they need and protects children from further harm.
You could be saving a life.
To make a report in Pennsylvania, call ChildLine at:
Call the police if a child is at immediate risk of injury.
Child Line is open 24/hrs a day and is toll free.
