The San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center is mobilizing families, neighborhoods, and the entire Bay Area to eliminate child abuse. Together we are strengthening families and helping them overcome the landscape that makes them vulnerable to abuse: poverty, job and housing loss, isolation, and community and family violence.

Together we can protect every child.
