Mission and Vision
Prevent Child Abuse-New Jersey (PCA-NJ) promotes great childhoods, positive parenting and healthy child development. Founded in 1979, our evidence-based programs throughout the state are dedicated to preventing child abuse and neglect in all forms for all New Jersey children.
We envision a world where every child has a happy, healthy and safe childhood – free of abuse and neglect.
Our prevention programs include public awareness campaigns, parenting education programs, workshops and professional training, home visitation services, initiatives that promote parental involvement in a child’s education, and projects that support highly vulnerable families. We help parents to nurture, develop and sustain healthy children. We are the New Jersey Chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America, a network of chapters in all 50 states.
