We have created this site because state health departments can play a leading role in child maltreatment prevention through programs and services that enhance family resiliency and foster positive child development. With public health infrastructure existing in every state and territory within the United States, the public health system is well-positioned to create a prevention system for children and families. We hope the information provided in this site is helpful in supporting your efforts to promote the health and well-being of children.

This work was supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.

In partnership with National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Division of Violence Prevention at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the CDC Foundation

We designed these worksheets to help you assess your organization’s current efforts and strengths.

You may also use them to help identify opportunities for action, as well as areas where you may be able to expand efforts. Capturing strengths and priority action areas can help you:

  • Make the case to leadership for new or sustained programs
  • Demonstrate to potential partners how your organization can be an integral partner for combined prevention efforts
  • Demonstrate to potential funders your role in child maltreatment prevention
