Every April, Cope Family Center commemorates National Child Abuse Prevention Month by bringing awareness to this important issue and raising funds to help keep children safe.

While it is painful to think that children are neglected or abused, it is important to face the heartbreaking reality that this tragedy does happen in our community.

In Napa County in 2017, Child Protective Services received 1,479 reports of abuse or neglect of which 199 were substantiated resulting in 93 children being removed from their homes.

One child suffering abuse or neglect is one child too many.

The best way to prevent child abuse and neglect is to support families and provide parents with the skills and resources they need to raise children who thrive. Cope's programs help parents handle life's challenges and the demands of parenting so they can be engaged and loving parents despite their struggles.
