Child Abuse & Neglect Prevention

Why Does Child Abuse Happen?

Research shows that parents and caregivers who have support from family, friends, and their community are more likely to provide safe and healthy homes for their children. Parents lacking support may be more likely to make poor decisions that can lead to the neglect and abuse of a child.
