Child Abuse Prevention

Reducing risk and promoting safety, we implement programs to equip and educate parents and caregivers to prevent child abuse.

Tragically, approximately 70 Arizona children lose their lives each year due to maltreatment. Half of those children never got to celebrate their 1st Birthdays. Phoenix Children’s is committed to reducing the risk of abuse for children in our communities. To keep children safe, our efforts involve addressing the problem instead of just treating the symptom.

Our awareness programs include The Shaken Baby Prevention Project, Project SAFE, and Stewards of Arizona’s Children. These initiatives teach parents and caregivers how to manage a crying baby responsibly, how to react to someone talking to or treating a child harshly and how to prevent, recognize and respond to child sexual abuse, respectively. Your donation empowers this critical and life-saving work, helping families to thrive.
