“An ounce of prevention

is worth a pound

of cure.”

Child Protective Services was established before we understood childhood trauma, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), or how to prevent them. Keeping children alive, and stopping further abuse is a low bar. Now we know differently, but mostly we don’t do differently.

The ACE study proves all child abuse is a matter of life and death. 1500 children die directly from abuse every year. Thousands more die from its consequences; suicide, violence and physical illness.

Evidence based program investments and legislative changes protect children and save taxpayers money. See below.
