Mission Statement - Prevent Child Abuse Indiana
Our mission is to be the voice in Indiana for preventing child abuse in all its forms. We accomplish this mission by increasing awareness of the problem and informing communities about solutions; serving as a valuable resource for families, individuals, and organizations; advocating for expanded and improved programs and policies to prevent child maltreatment; and fostering a statewide network committed to child abuse prevention.
As a division of The Villages, Prevent Child Abuse Indiana (PCAIN) serves as a catalyst for preventing child abuse in all its forms, thereby enhancing the quality of life for children and families in Indiana. The vision of PCAIN is to make Indiana a state in which children flourish free from abuse and neglect.
PCAIN works with community, state, and national groups to expand and disseminate information about child abuse prevention. Further, it translates that information into action through the development of sound child- and family-oriented policies, community-based prevention activities, public awareness, and educational initiatives.
PCAIN is governed by a geographically and culturally diverse Advisory Committee who is dedicated to the mission of the organization, and is supported by an experienced, professional staff which includes a statewide network of affiliated and chartered councils. Together, we can help prevent child abuse, and make Indiana a safer state for children.
