Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention
Children’s Trust administers the federal Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention (CBCAP) programs in South Carolina. These grants are funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families. The supported programs are innovative, child-centered and family-focused and work to strengthen families using proven protective factors.
Home visiting is a proven, early-intervention strategy that pairs new, volunteer families with home visitors who provide family-focused services throughout the child’s first few years. The program offers services to expectant and post-partum parents and families with new babies and children. In South Carolina many of the program models serve at-risk, low-income mothers. Skills addressed include maternal and child health, positive parenting practices, safe home environments and access to services.Learn More
