2016/2017 was a busy year for CAPC. With support from the State Office of Child Abuse Prevention, CAPC began leading a broad Bay Area effort to raise awareness of the Five Protective Factors which are the foundation of the Strengthening Families Approach. Your continued support has helped expand our Speak Up Be Safe child safety program into Richmond and Concord schools. Our Nurturing Parenting Program is reaching more and more at risk families with positive parenting education, and CAPC is now working with parents who have children with special needs. We distributed over 14,000 Surviving Parenthood Resource Directories to Contra Costa residents. Our Sue Fleischner Special Needs Fund continues to serve families who are isolated and in need of critical to lessen the stress on families and keep kids safe. This year, we also supported Assemblywoman Baker’s bill AB 993 to support children who are the victims of severe sexual crimes.
