Floyd County Child Abuse Prevention Council (FCCABC)
President

Mission is to end child abuse in the county. Its single-minded focus on prevention is unique in the child abuse field, where most efforts involve counseling and treating children and families after abuse has already occurred. Providing families with appropriate and timely social support, crisis/respite child care, and education reduces the risk of child abuse. Social support breaks down the isolation that many parents experience and helps them build the connections they need. Crisis/respite child care enables them to survive periods of high stress. Education teaches parents how to communicate effectively and manage better their children's behavior and instructs children how to avoid abuse.

The law enforcement community is trained to discourage and interrupt crime, and bring criminals to justice, and they do it well. 

As citizens, though, we all are the front line of crime prevention and can do a lot to discourage criminals from choosing us and our charges as targets. What we do to protect our families, our businesses, etc., is an individual and subjective decision, based on our sur­roundings, our circumstances and capabilities.
