The Center for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect is working to make North Texas one of the safest places to raise a child.

Child abuse and neglect includes all forms of physical and emotional ill-treatment, sexual abuse, neglect, and exploitation that results in actual or potential harm to the child's health, development or dignity. The youngest children, age 0-3, are the most vulnerable.
