Kids Central is a statewide leader in the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Our innovative programs provide targeted, short-term assistance to give families the support they need to remain healthy, happy, and whole. These efforts help stop abuse and neglect before they start – to the benefit of the entire community.
Kids Central believes investing in families up front, before a call to the abuse hotline, reduces the likelihood the children will be abused or neglected and need help later. Under the leadership of John Cooper, Kids Central is focused on the identification of research-based and results-driven prevention and diversion programs.
