For over 30 years Child Abuse Prevention Councils have led the way in building awareness, providing education and inspiring hope in the effort to prevent child abuse and neglect in every county in California. The Greater Bay Area Child Abuse Prevention Council Coalition represents ten counties coordinating resources, advocating for public policy, producing conferences and trainings and sharing best practices.

Each of the ten Child Abuse Prevention Councils in this coalition is a resource and referral agency. The councils work with public and private agencies to prevent child abuse. We also hold free mandated reporter trainings throughout the Bay Area.

Child Abuse Prevention Councils are made up of professionals, volunteers, donors and parents who are actively preventing child abuse and neglect.

Contact your county to find out how to get involved! Together we can make a difference.
