As the designated Child Abuse Prevention Council (CAPC), The Partnership for Safe Families & Communities of Ventura County (The Partnership) is a collaborative non-profit organization with over 30 years of experience providing inter-agency coordination, networking, advocacy, public awareness, and education to prevent child abuse, neglect, and family violence across the lifespan.
Our Mission: To promote a community committed to safe, healthy, peaceful families.
During this month we are going to focus on strengthening families and keeping children safe by sharing and discussing The 5 Protective Factors. The 5 Protective Factors provide parents with specific tools to nurture and support the well-being of their children. New videos are added to our video gallery(above) weekly.
"If I see, hear, suspect, or in any way become aware that a child is being abused, I will not keep silent. I will have the courage to help that child break free of the silence, secrecy, and shame that should never define a child's life."
