Child Abuse Prevention

Child Abuse Prevention is the National Project of the Exchange Club.

Secure and healthy families are the foundation of healthy and safe homes as well as strong communities.

Exchange Clubs and Exchange Club Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Centers across the country help build this foundation.

At the heart of our efforts is the Exchange Parent Aide program, facilitated through Exchange Club CAP Centers across the country. Parent Aides are trained and professionally supervised individuals who work in the homes of families to provide education and support. Parent Aides are mentors for families.

In addition to the Parent Aide program, these CAP Centers also provide a variety of other supportive services.

Exchange Club members support this effort in a variety of ways—from distributing educational information to volunteering to raising funds for CAP programs.

The CAP Services Department of The National Exchange Club hopes the information on our site will help families—and those who support and encourage families—as they seek to understand and problem-solve the various challenges that come with raising children.

Our Jacksonville Exchange Club sponsors the local “Exchange Club Family Center” (www.ExchangeClubFamilyCenter.com), and we sponsor an annual Child Abuse Prevention Luncheon to raise both funds and public awareness for this important topic.
