The Children’s Advocacy Center of Northeastern Pennsylvania encourages community members to learn more about child abuse and neglect. To help, we offer an array of prevention and education programs and professional consultation opportunities. If you wish to have one of these programs presented to your group, call CAC/NEPA at 570.969.7313.

CAC/NEPA 101 – this presentation is designed to familiarize attendees with the Children’s Advocacy Center model and multidisciplinary team approach.

Child Abuse 101: Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse – this presentation addresses critical information on the process of reporting suspected/possible child abuse. It covers the impact and effects of abuse, tips for handling a disclosure of abuse, signs and symptoms of abuse and neglect, how to make a report and what happens after a report is filed.


When it comes to making a difference in improving children’s lives, there is a place for everyone to contribute. Child abuse and neglect is a community problem. Child care and protection is a community responsibility.
