Orange County Child Abuse Prevention Center
In an effort to create violence-free homes, Orange County Child Abuse Prevention Center (CAPC) works to stop the generational cycle of child abuse. Through in-home visits and mental-health counseling, it teaches at-risk families how to replace parenting that may lead to abuse and neglect with healthy, positive parenting styles, promoting self-sufficiency and nurturing parent-child relationships.
CAPC caseworkers use 14 intervention-style programs to alleviate family stress and eliminate negative parenting techniques that could lead to child abuse. They work with high-risk families to promote positive parenting with infants and toddlers, teach teens about healthy dating choices, and reach out to families in which abuse is suspected. Parent-to-parent workshops connect families to help them learn from one another, whereas in-home mental-health services and crisis stabilization for suicidal or homicidal children help reduce violence in already fractured homes.
