Child Abuse prevention Council
The mission of the Child Abuse Prevention Council (CAPC) is to actively develop, support, and coordinate efforts and community awareness to prevent child abuse and heal its effects.
Who We Are:
The Child Abuse Prevention Council of Stanislaus County provides a local forum for interagency cooperation and coordination of services in the areas of prevention, intervention, and treatment as it relates to child abuse and neglect. The Council is made up of a broad array of service organizations, public agencies, and community members. The CAPC serves as a forum for program and community collaborative sharing, service planning, and perpetuating the philosophy of agencies and communities working together for the most positive, productive, and safe outcomes for children and families.
On February 19, 2002, the Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors established the Child Abuse Prevention Council (CAPC) as a subcommittee of the Stanislaus Children's Council. Though the CAPC was a subcommittee, it always functioned independently of the council in its efforts of bring awareness of child abuse in the community. The 2005-2008 3-year plan restructured the CAPC in that it no longer functioned as a subcommittee, but as an independent entity as required under W&I Code Section 18983.5. Furthermore, the Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors approved the Child Abuse Prevention Council (CAPC) by-laws under Welfare and Institutions Code Chapter 12.5, Section 18980.
