Hello Friends of CAPC,
April is National Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness month and time to raise awareness about the importance of prevention. Child abuse is often hidden but always far reaching in its effects.
In partnership with The San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center and Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley we have released a study of the economics of child abuse:
The Cost of Child Abuse for Contra Costa County.
As always thank you for your support! Read more […]
CAPC joined Kaiser Permanente Educational Theatre for Family Night at Fair Oaks Elementary Thursday, March 30. Kaiser hosted Peace Signs, which is a play about three students who learn lessons about empathy and nonviolence. The production covers conflict resolution, bullying and violence prevention. In this production children learn conflict resolution, how to respond to bullying, and empathy for others. CAPC believes that giving children these tools can help children be safe and respect their peers. It was a pleasure to host a resource table at this event.

August 10, 2015 Press Release
It’s important to teach our children to tell a safe adult if anyone (a peer, teenager, or adult) makes them feel uncomfortable, worried, or scared or if they are being threatened or coerced in any way. Children should also learn to first check with their mom, dad or whomever they live with before going with someone…even someone they know. While we teach our children “stranger danger” rules, in fact, most child abuse occurs at the hands of someone the child knows and trusts. Talk with your children about these important topics and make sure the conversation is ongoing and age appropriate. CAPC’s Speak Up Be Safe child abuse and bullying prevention program educates students, parents/caregivers, and the community about child safety issues. Through classroom lessons, take-home activities and handouts, and parent/caregiver and school staff presentations, the program provides important safety information and skills and helps build a comprehensive safety net for our children. If you have any questions about this program please call Carol Shenon, Child Safety Awareness Coordinator, at CAPC (925) 798-0546, ext. 16
