Prevent Child Abuse Alaska

Alaska Children's Trust (ACT) is home to Prevent Child Abuse Alaska. Through this national partnership with Prevent Child Abuse America, we take advantage of national resources and relationships that allow us to learn and grow from best practices in other states.  

Prevent Child Abuse America, founded in 1972 in Chicago, works to ensure the healthy development of children nationwide. The organization promotes that vision through a network of chapters in 50 states and over 500 Healthy Families America home visitation sites in 41 states, all the territories, Puerto Rico and Canada. A major organizational focus is to advocate for the existence of a national policy framework and strategy for children and families while promoting evidence-based practices that prevent abuse and neglect from ever occurring.

National Movement for America's Children

The National Movement for America’s Children, started by Prevent Child Abuse America, is a fast-growing grassroots initiative of organizations and people from coast to coast, who are collaborating to develop a comprehensive national strategy to ensure that all of our children are given an opportunity to develop – socially, emotionally and cognitively – in healthy, nurturing homes, schools, neighborhoods and communities. Their website is a collaborative space for you to connect with others in the Movement, share your thoughts and ideas for a national strategy, and bring the Movement to your community.
