Our Prevention Network


The Prevention Network is an affiliation of individuals and organizations who care about New York’s children and families. It unites voices advocating for the prevention of child abuse and neglect; facilitates education, information and resource referral; fosters community collaboration; and enhances community awareness about child abuse prevention efforts.

Who are members of the Prevention Network?

Members include individuals, agencies, organizations, and community groups who work to strengthen families and ensure every child in New York has a happy and nurturing childhood. They represent a diverse group of fields including early childhood education, public health, faith communities, schools, mental health, physicians, child protection, domestic violence, law, and family support agencies. This diversity reflects what we already know about preventing child abuse – that everyone has a role in helping families nurture their children and preventing maltreatment.

Why Should You Join?

Our children are our future. Raising a healthy, happy child is not a one person effort – it requires the support of a whole community of people. By working together, we can help families develop the skills they need to overcome the challenging situations in which many parents find themselves.
