Parent & Program Stories

Each year, 15,000 families receive support and education through PCA Iowa-managed prevention programs. These programs focus on teaching how to be better parents, manage stress, strengthen connections, and access resources – all factors shown to reduce the likelihood of abuse and neglect.

Prevent Child Abuse Iowa enhances this work by providing resources, guidance and training to 85 partners delivering prevention services in 90 Iowa counties. It advocates at the state legislature to increase funding for these efforts and raises awareness of this cause among Iowans.

The following stories are about services supported by the Iowa Child Abuse Prevention Program, as well as the parents who ultimately benefit. By giving to the Child Abuse Prevention Check Off, you’ll help services like these continue to grow and serve more families.
