Connections Matter Congregation | Prevent Child Abuse NC

YOU CAN #BeAConnection, especially North Carolina’s Faith Communities, especially now!

Connections Matter in Faith and Prevention

Did you know when we support and connect with one another we are providing hope and key protective factors that help prevent child abuse and neglect?  Our North Carolina Faith Communities often provide these protective factors to their families, congregants, and communities without even knowing that by doing what you do best, you are improving the health and well-being for those you serve.  Science shows that the positive connections we make not only improves the health of our biology and brain development, but they are essential in reducing the effects of stress and trauma which is at the heart of prevention.

Please consider joining PCANC and NC Faith Communities across the state in raising awareness how connections matter in making prevention of child maltreatment a priority.

Executive Order 13831

Faith-based and community organizations have tremendous ability to serve individuals, families, and communities through means that are different from those of government and with capacity that often exceeds that of government. These organizations lift people up, keep families strong, and solve problems at the local level.
