Impact Story

Annual Impact Summary


Across 161 hosted convenings and 20+ programs, Prevent Child Abuse Arizona served a total of 4,188 professionals in FY2022. These participants went on to use their knowledge to serve an estimated 611,000 families! One third of professionals returned for multiple program offerings from Prevent Child Abuse Arizona. This could not have been possible without the financial partnership of our government, foundation, and individual donor partners. With your help, we were able to reach all 15 Arizona counties.

2023 Prevent Child Abuse America Federal Policy Agenda


Prevention services and supports are critical for family and community wellbeing. Many factors - including poverty, unemployment, inadequate housing, and food insecurity - interfere with wellbeing by creating an overload of stress on parents, which interferes with their ability to best care for their children. PCA America is committed to advocating for policies that address these factors. Now is a great time to contact new legislators about policies listed on this agenda.

Suskind argues that a similar association for parents could transform our nation into one that truly prioritizes child wellbeing.
