Child Abuse Prevention Grants

Child abuse prevention and treatment is another of the Exchange Club’s grant focus areas and an important area for Exchange Clubs across the country. In evaluating grant proposals, significant service to residents and/or students of Johns & Wadmalaw islands is a priority. Grants are aimed at programs educating our local school personnel to recognize child abuse and treatment of abuse victims and their families.

 

The National Exchange Club is very active in this area, They use public awareness materials designed to help inform and increase awareness of child abuse and how it can be prevented. Projects are implemented through Clubs like ours and Exchange Club Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Centers across the country.

 

The National Exchange was the winner of a Presidential Award from the White House Office of Private Sector Initiatives, is a charter member of The National Child Abuse Coalition, and is a Partner in Prevention with the Children’s Bureau, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
