Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky (PCAK) is the state’s leading child abuse and neglect prevention agency with over 300 Partners in Prevention across the commonwealth. Through evidence based and evidence informed content, PCAK has led the charge in child sexual abuse prevention efforts for decades. By surveying individuals across the commonwealth, collaborating with subject matter experts, parents, individuals with lived experience and research, PCAK created a curriculum designed for community members, caregivers, service providers and more to ensure all Kentuckians have the necessary tools to strengthen families and prevent child sexual abuse before it occurs.
