April is Child Abuse Prevention Month – one of the most important times for child abuse prevention councils around the country. The Child Abuse Prevention Council of Warren County (CAPCWC) is running our giving campaign throughout the month, to spread awareness of the programs we serve and to fund these programs which benefit the community. 100 percent of the funds we raise go to supporting our programs and Warren County families. When you financially support our ongoing work with children, parents and the community, you become involved in protecting children. The CAPCWC currently runs three programs:

24/7 Dad:Developed by fathering and parenting experts, 24/7 Dad focuses on the characteristics men need to be involved fathers around the clock, while helping develop the attitudes, knowledge and skills they need as well.

Learn & Play Group:This curriculum provides a developmentally appropriate structure for use in playgroups and early childhood programs for parents and their children, ages 0-5.

Parent Café:Providing a non-judgmental environment for parents and caregivers, Parent Café facilitates meaningful conversations about how to keep their children safe and their family strong. All three of these programs work with Warren County families to strengthen relationships and be confident in parenting.

According to a survey, 56 percent of Iowans experienced at least one of eight types of child abuse and household dysfunction from 2012-2014. These Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) include:

Emotional abuse

Physical abuse

Sexual abuse

Substance abuse
