Welcome and thank you for visiting 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.  We urge you to get involved today and help us make a difference.
