(SARASOTA, FL, December 28) – The Child Protection Center, Inc. (CPC) was selected by the Harold C. & Jacqueline F. Bladel Foundation, Inc. The grant was applied to The CPC’s Personal Safety and Community Awareness (PSCA) program.
The PSCA program offers a holistic approach to the prevention of child abuse by promoting greater community awareness of the issue. PSCA provides primary abuse prevention education to children from preschool through high school. The program facilitates workshops for their caregivers, childcare professionals, teachers, school board staff and the greater community. The focus is the creation of a future in which children are empowered and educated, adults are aware and equipped, and our community is a safer place for children and families.
Since its inception in 1980, The Child Protection Center has grown in service capabilities to become the only DeSoto and Sarasota service provider with a multifaceted approach to the prevention, intervention, and treatment, of child abuse. The four core programs that work towards the mission of The CPC include; Personal Safety and Community Awareness (PSCA), Child Protection Team (CPT), Children and Families Supervised Visitation Program (CFSVP), and Therapy programs. In 2018, The CPC provided over 84,000 services.
