Resources to Support Children & Families

​CJAC's mission is to serve children and families affected by child abuse and to provide a collaborative and compassionate community response.

CJAC believes that adults are the first and most appropriate line of defense in keeping children safe. Therefore, the foundation of our prevention effort is Stewards of Children curriculum developed by Darkness to Light that teaches adults how to recognize, respond to and prevent child sexual abuse. 

Stewards of Children training is free to the community and it teaches adults how to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. The program is designed for individuals concerned about the safety of children as well as organizations that serve youth. Training includes discussion about critical issues in sexual abuse prevention and the relevance of these issues in our communities through a video sharing the voices of survivors and experts in the field.

Child Abuse Reporting

To report suspected child abuse, please contact both Child Protective Services (CPS) AND Law Enforcement. They will assess the information you provide to determine the severity of the case and whether it will be a joint investigation by both agencies.


Children are abused yearly. Child abuse is a horrific experience with potentially lasting effects. It’s also, unfortunately, a common experience in America.

Youth Suicide Prevention

Suicide and suicidal behavior are influenced by negative conditions in which people live, play, work, and learn. These conditions, sometimes called social determinants of health, can include racism and discrimination in our society, economic hardship (such as high unemployment), poverty, limited affordable housing, lack of educational opportunities, and barriers to physical and mental healthcare access, among others.


Youth and young adults ages 10–24 years account for 15% of all suicides.
