Prevent Child Abuse Missouri
Prevent Child Abuse America (PCAA) was founded in 1972 and works to promote the healthy development of children and prevent child abuse before it can occur in order to help children to grow up and contribute in their communities. Prevent Child Abuse America is represented in all 50 states and in 2010, Missouri KidsFirst became the state chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America. Missouri KidsFirst (as Prevent Child Abuse Missouri) participates in the PCAA signature program, Pinwheels for Prevention, to increase awareness of child abuse prevention. As the state chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America, Missouri KidsFirst also works to promote great childhoods for all children by advocating for policies that help strengthen families and educating communities about the importance of safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments for families that are proven to reduce the risk of child abuse and neglect.
