Welcome and thank you for visiting the Pennsylvania Children s Trust Fund and Friends of the Pennsylvania Children s Trust Fund.. The Pennsylvania Children s Trust Fund is dedicated to funding community-based child abuse and neglect prevention programs.. Prevention is the best solution for reducing child abuse and neglect and improving the lives of children and families; while preventable, an estimated one million children are confirmed victims of child maltreatment each year in the United States.. The impact of child maltreatment is profound.. Research shows that maltreatment is associated with adverse health and mental health outcomes in children and families, and those negative effects can last a lifetime.. Abuse and neglect have pervasive and long-lasting effects on children, their families and the society.. Adverse consequences for children s development often are evident immediately, encompassing multiple domains including physical, emotional, social and cognitive.. For many, these effects extend far beyond childhood into adolescence and adulthood, potentially compromising the lifetime productivity of abused and neglected victims..

The 2013 Children s Trust Fund Request for Application (RFA) will be issued in late February or early March to fund community-based child abuse and neglect prevention  ...   One child abused or neglected is one too many, so we must focus on prevention programs that will help families with the important skills that they need to raise their children in safe and attentive homes, Department of Public Welfare Secretary Gary D.. Alexander said.. These grants are about helping to strengthen the family core and the values in raising children.. Selected grantees in 2012 will use evidence- or research-based methods to provide comprehensive support services to pregnant and parenting teens and young adults that will strengthen families and family environments to prevent child abuse and neglect..
