Child Abuse Prevention Council
The Child Abuse Prevention Council (CAPC) is state-mandated to act as an umbrella council for those agencies and community members who work in the field of child abuse prevention and service.
Cope Family Center is the lead agency for CAPC of Napa County, which has served Napa County for more than 30 years. Members of CAPC's Steering Committee and Council itself work to identify goals and act upon them.
The Child Abuse Prevention Council:
- Creates a unified voice for child abuse prevention in Napa County
- Promotes and coordinates the myriad of resource agencies that work in prevention and service
- Supports projects that have a direct positive effect on child abuse prevention and service delivery for the abused
- Represents the council's prevention role as a member of the Child Death Review Team
- Facilitates and co-sponsors events, workshops and trainings
- Is a member of the Greater Bay Area CAPC Coalition, which supports and facilitates regional events and trainings
- Is a member of the Napa County Safe Kid's Chapter
- Facilitates childhood sexual abuse prevention trainings and workshops
Each April, CAPC mounts the Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Campaign, symbolized by the Blue Ribbon. Each year, Blue Ribbon Month focuses on a different aspect of child abuse. Awareness activities and events take place throughout the month of April to educate the community about child abuse prevention and make Napa County a safer place for children.
CAPC of Napa County was instrumental in the creation of The Courage Center, a safe, holistic environment for child victims of sexual and physical abuse, where interviews and physical examinations can be provided in an all-encompassing child-friendly environment.
In addition, CAPC delivers critical Mandated Reporter Trainings to agencies employing individuals that work closely with children and families. Mandated Reporter Trainings (MRTs) inform mandated reporters of their legal obligations to report known and suspected child abuse or neglect, what the signs are to look for, the process of reporting and what happens after a report is made. Participants are given the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the child welfare system. If your agency would like to schedule a FREE training, please contact Dianne Jackel at email@example.com.
