We believe preventing child maltreatment is more than a family matter. Especially now.
With the new CBCAP funds being distributed through the American Recovery Plan Act, the Alliance collaborated with the Center for the Study of Social Policy, Prevent Child Abuse America, National Family Support Network and EndCAN on a document about how to use these funds to strengthen families and communities.

Every April we observe National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The Alliance National Parent Partnership Council (ANPPC) has developed toolkits around the theme: HERO – Healthy Empowering Response to Opportunity. We continue to celebrate parents and families as heroes and acknowledge the many ways they help their children and themselves manage everyday emotions throughout the pandemic.
Visit the Parent Voice Page to access mini-toolkits filled with activities, videos, printable resources and further reading.
As an organization working to help every child and youth in the United States grow up in strong, stable, nurturing families within thriving and prosperous communities, we reaffirm our commitment to racial justice and to becoming an anti-racist organization.

The COVID-19 pandemic is placing tremendous stress on families and children and their communities. Families are doing their best to manage their own fear and stress and to reduce the trauma being experienced by their children – but they need help.

Help Us Make the Case for Continued Support
The pandemic is creating health and economic hardships for businesses, communities and families. At a time when there is such critical need at every turn, we need to make the case for additional support for children and families dealing with the challenges of COVID-19. Collecting and sharing the stories of families during the pandemic is one way to put a face on these real and everyday challenges to help systems leaders and policymakers prioritize the needs of families.
We have created a short questionnaire to give families a way to share your stories with the media. The questionnaire is simple and submission will be followed up by a contact from the Alliance. Stories are powerful – so if you have a story to share or know of a family that you work with that might be willing to share their story, please complete the questionnaire HERE or share this link with others: https://tinyurl.com/y6cel9g2
