Our mission is to promote the safety of children and prevent child abuse and neglect in Contra Costa County by raising community awareness, influencing public policy, educating our community, and providing resources.



Child Abuse Prevention Council of Contra Costa County

This website contains valuable information every family needs for support and resources. As a parent, teacher, caregiver, or any role that includes the care and responsibility of children, the programs and resources included at www.capc-coco.org will be of interest to you.  Parenting is the most difficult and most important work we do.

Remember, if kids came with instructions, parenting would be a lot easier. But they don’t. 

Parents need supportive partners in their child rearing efforts. 

The Child Abuse Prevention Council can be that important partner for families, neighborhoods and all communities of Contra Costa County. We welcome all who wish to join us in building healthy families and protecting children.

Our children’s poster project slogan says it all:

“It shouldn’t hurt to be a child”.

Wishing you peace,

Carol Carrillo, MSW
Executive Director
