June 27, 2011 Host Lynette Mullen Interviews Meg Walkley of the Child Abuse Prevention Coordinating Council of Humboldt County.

Mission Statement

The Child Abuse Prevention Coordinating Council of Humboldt County is a broad-based non profit advocacy organization that works to eliminate child abuse and neglect in our community through (1) striving to assure coordinated services and policies for the prevention, intervention and treatment of child abuse among agencies and organizations, (2) actively promoting and supporting high-quality programs that successfully reduce child abuse and neglect and (3) increasing public awareness of resources to help prevent child abuse and decrease family stress.

About Us

The Humboldt Child Abuse Council was established in 1978 with the purpose of bringing together private and public agencies and interested individuals involved in fields related to the prevention, intervention and treatment of child physical and sexual abuse and child neglect. For a short time, it was known as Humboldt Child Trauma Council. In 1985, the California Legislature passed AB 1980, which provided statutory authority for a child abuse council in each county and our organization took on this role (see Welfare & Institution Code). In 1986, our organization became a non-profit corporation- The Child Abuse Prevention Coordinating Council of Humboldt County.

The organization is comprised of its general members, a Volunteer Board of Directors, and a Coordinating Consultant (see roster). CAPCC membership is open to anyone interested in child abuse prevention, intervention and treatment. The monthly General Membership/Board meetings are held the fourth Friday of each month from 12:15 to 1:30 and all are welcome. Please see the upcoming agenda for meeting location.
