American Campaign for Prevention of Child Abuse & Family Violence

American Campaign for Prevention of Child Abuse & Family Violence The American Campaign for Prevention of Child Abuse and Family Violence dba National Council on Child Abuse & Family Violence (NCCAFV) - preventing child abuse, domestic violence and elder abuse in America's families.

In 2019, our thirty-fifth Year of Service to America's Children and Families, NCCAFV and its American Prevention Campaign is committed to assisting victims of child abuse, spouse/partner abuse and elder abuse and to prevent family violence through public awareness, education and program development. Five hundred children die each year from abuse and at least half of all child abuse fatalities are children under one year of age. Domestic violence will occur at least once in two-thirds of all marriages. One out of every twenty older Americans are victims of elder abuse but only one out of ten cases of elder abuse get reported. The American Campaign for Prevention of Child Abuse and Family Violence continues a significant expansion in its outreach through the media and through the Internet in response to victims, families, students, churches, libraries, schools, and civic groups. NCCAFV also continues to provide training and technical assistance to agencies each year in the United States and internationally in preventing child abuse, spouse/partner abuse and elder abuse. The American Campaign receives generous financial support through gifts and bequests from individuals, foundations and corporate donors, and through the America’s Charities Federation, the Combined Federal Campaign and private sector corporate workplace campaigns. No grant support is sought or received from any government source. On behalf of the Board of Directors, our thanks to all whose interest, voluntary efforts and financial donations help NCCAFV and its American Prevention Campaign make a difference for so many of America’s hurting families -- children, women, men, and the elderly.

Dear Friend of the American Campaign,

Please forgive our failure to address you personally, but this message is being sent on an urgent basis to you as a friend of the National Council's American Campaign for Prevention of Child Abuse and Family Violence (www.preventfamilyviolence.org).

As the threat of this Coronavirus continues to increase and children remain at home because of extended school closures in much of the nation, the AMERICAN CAMPAIGN FOR PREVENTION OF CHILD ABUSE AND FAMILY VIOLENCE needs generous supporters like you who can answer the call for contributions during this critical time of at-home vulnerability for many children and families.

If you have already made your donation, thank you for helping make our critical services possible! And, please consider making an additional gift if you are able to do so.

If you have not made a contribution yet, we ask you to do so now. Your support will enable us to fulfill our mission to provide services that prevent intergenerational family violence: child abuse and neglect, spouse/partner abuse, and elder abuse and neglect.

Did you know that domestic violence (spouse/partner abuse) is reported in more than 50% of investigations by public authorities into child abuse?

• Five hundred children die each year from abuse and at least half of all child abuse fatalities are children under one year of age. Domestic violence will occur at least once in two-thirds of all marriages. One out of every twenty older Americans are victims of elder abuse but only one out of ten cases of elder abuse get reported.

• In 2020, the American Campaign for Prevention of Child Abuse and Family Violence must continue its growing outreach to victims, families, students, churches, libraries, schools, and civic groups.

• Our certified audit of financial statements document that 95% of your donations provide direct Prevention Services and only 5% is needed for management and fundraising. The small percentage allocated to management and fundraising is a reliable indication that your donations go directly to the American Campaign's prevention programs.

An Urgent Message from our President

The COVID-19 outbreak is putting extra pressure on us at the American Campaign for Prevention of Child Abuse and Family Violence because of the surge in frequency and severity of child abuse, domestic spouse/partner abuse, and elder abuse and neglect under enforced lockdown, alongside a family’s often acute drop in financial resources.

We at the National Council’s American Prevention Campaign are seeing exactly this: higher demand for our support and expertise while we are losing 35–40 percent of our donation income because of coronavirus.

We have had to shift to even more direct service online to those experiencing family violence at home, a service we were already deploying. We have a range of existing digital platforms to help efficiently deliver immediate support and referrals for vulnerable individuals and families needing immediate, direct local services, support advice, and intervention assistance.

While we were already using digital resources to serve vulnerable families and individuals seeking help, COVID-19 has forced the team to accelerate those and many other new ways of working.

We have almost entirely pivoted to immediate work on COVID-19’s social and relational impact (both physical and emotional) on family well-being. Some staff who cannot take part in that effort are furloughed to ensure the American Prevention Campaign’s financial sustainability. All remaining volunteer staff are working from home.

The National Council on Child Abuse and Family Violence (NCCAFV) and its American Prevention Campaign are available on: www.preventfamilyviolence.org. Thank you for giving during this difficult time for all of us.

We are open and working from our homes - the incidents of family violence are increasing in so many multigenerational families as they attempt to be (and remain) at home together. Many people have no choice but to be in close quarters with those from whom they may be better off far away.

Already there are reports both in the United States and abroad of increased domestic family violence (child abuse, spouse/partner abuse, elder abuse) under lockdown conditions. See examples of news coverage below under Comments for this post.

As usual, the people on the receiving end of most of this are children and women, who are running into pharmacies shouting code words.

If you know anyone who is vulnerable to violence in their home, take a moment to check in with them by phone or text or email to assure them by offering to be helpful in any way they think will be helpful, including checking in with them again or not if your contact only adds to their concern or vulnerability.

Thank you for any help you can give them and thank you for your critical financial support as we continue to work during this difficult time.

Unless government, funders and nonprofit leaders take immediate and decisive action to help nonprofits during the coronavirus outbreak, many nonprofits around the nation may just disappear over the next few months leaving those they serve and employ in disastrous circumstances, writes John MacIntosh
