Generational cycles of abuse and neglect must be interrupted
We focus on two-generation strategies, working with extended families to break entrenched cycles of abuse. When we get parents to find the resilience where they can navigate tough times, we bring about
lasting change for children through safety and stability at home.
Innovative programs have the power to transform
We can’t expect better outcomes if we keep doing the same thing. We need new solutions – grounded in research and fueled by collaboration – that focus on sustainable programs to reduce child abuse and neglect in our state.
Prevention is the wise investment
South Carolina spends approximately $1 billion annually in direct and indirect expenses associated with treatment of child abuse and neglect. Dedicated prevention resources, which are much less costly, would yield a tremendous return on the investment.
Children need all of us working together.
