On March 16th, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 485 – Stronger Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (Sponsored by Rep. Robert Scott). CAPTA funds nonprofits, including Childhelp, through grants that support efforts in child abuse prevention, assessment, investigation, prosecution, and treatment. Congressional re-authorization of this legislation is required this year to provide for programs that respond to child abuse and neglect, and offer critical resources for communities to strengthen families and promote the well-being of children.

CAPTA provides grants to nonprofit organizations like Childhelp to support their efforts in prevention, assessment, investigation, prosecution, and treatment activities.
At Childhelp, our goal is to meet the physical, emotional, educational, and spiritual needs of abused, neglected and at-risk children. The principle theme across all of our programs is to provide children we serve with an environment of compassion and kindness.
Our organization and other non-profit agencies working so hard for these most vulnerable children are at risk of losing funding that supports these efforts.
