Prevent Child Abuse Wisconsin builds community resources, provides training and public awareness, and carries out advocacy activities in order to strengthen child abuse prevention efforts in Wisconsin.
Prevent Child Abuse Wisconsin is the state chapter of the national child abuse organization, Prevent Child Abuse America. PCAW does not provide direct service, but does provide information to concerned citizens and professionals through the 1-800-CHILDREN information phone line, handouts, pamphlets, and our website. PCAW provides opportunities for involvement and advocacy for survivors of abuse through the Banner Project and the Art of Healing display. PCAW hosts the annual, statewide Together for Children Child Abuse and Neglect Conference, partners with media and provides materials to local prevention groups to assist them in their community outreach efforts. PCAW advocates for policies that have a positive impact on children and families through communications with national and state representatives and by providing information and strategies to people across Wisconsin to support them in advocating for issues related to child abuse prevention. PCAW is developing the Circle of Parents network of parent mutual self-help groups throughout the state. PCAW is the administrative home for the Protective Behaviors network.
