Prevent Together – The National Coalition to Prevent Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation
Established over 15 years ago, the Prevention Coalition—with 44 national member organizations and leaders headquartered across 21 states and DC—includes many of the largest and most influential youth-serving and family support organizations in the country. With National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, Prevent Child Abuse America, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, the National Council of Youth Sports, the US Center for SafeSport, and many others, the Coalition’s member organizations impact more than 45 million children and families annually in all 50 states. The Coalition’s membership also includes experts who have influenced national and state policy, practice, and prevention through their decades of providing cutting-edge training and organizational safety consultations, conducting research, and writing a broad range of prominent publications.
MassKids and its Enough Abuse Campaign have been members of the National Coalition since 2009. MassKids Director serves as Co-Chair of the Policy Committee.
Prevent Child Abuse America
Founded in 1972, Prevent Child Abuse America (PCA America)’s mission is to prevent the abuse and neglect of our nation’s children. Together with its network of 47 state chapters and over 400 “Healthy Families America” home visitation programs in 41 states, it focuses on community activities and public policies that prioritize prevention right from the start to make sure child abuse and neglect never occur. From 1986-2022, MassKids, home of the Enough Abuse Campaign, served as Prevent Child Abuse Massachusetts, the State Chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America. Currently, MassKids is serving as Co-Lead on a multi-year CDC research grant with Prevent Child Abuse America and the National Conference of State Legislatures to study the effect of child sexual abuse prevention legislation in states on reported cases of child sexual abuse.
Whether you identify as a victim, survivor, or as someone working through the trauma of sexual abuse, know that you are not alone, you are not to blame for what happened, and support is available to help you on your journey to healing.
