Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
"To educate and train parents and professionals, and to conduct research that will prevent the shaking and abuse of infants in the United States".
The National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome (NCSBS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and is the only worldwide organization that is dedicated solely to the prevention of this form of child abuse. The National Center began offering SBS prevention programs in 1990 and incorporated as a legal entity in 2000. The NCSBS has been providing leadership in the development of prevention programs, training courses and public education campaigns. Every year, the National Center's ongoing training efforts reach thousands of medical, legal, child protection and law enforcement professionals worldwide. The prevention and awareness programs also teach thousands of parents, students and caregivers throughout the world. These programs cannot continue to reach communities without the support of people who share our commitment to protect children.
The NCSBS focuses their efforts in two areas: professional training for those who work with SBS/AHT cases, and prevention education for parents and those who work to prevent child abuse.
