National Project - Prevention of Child Abuse
The prevention of child abuse became Exchange’s National Project in 1979. Since then, we’ve made it our mission to not only increase child abuse awareness but do all that we can to prevent it. The prevention projects in which our members take part in are implemented across the country by Exchange Clubs and Exchange Club Centers for the Prevention of Child Abuse. Through the scholarly-reviewed Exchange Parent Aide home visitation model, child abuse prevention experts work directly with at-risk families to create impactful change.
Our dedication to this important cause has earned us the Presidential Award from the White House Office of Private Sector Initiatives. Additionally, we are a charter member of The National Child Abuse Coalition and a Partner in Prevention with the Children’s Bureau, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
