Administrative History

In the fall of 1993, a group of human service providers and other concerned persons from the community decided to make a formal commitment to combat the problem of child abuse and neglect by focusing on preventative measures. This group had been active in planning and supporting Open Door community Services efforts to obtain grant funds to begin a Healthy Families Indiana program in Delaware County. This collaboration process among individuals was the “seeding” for the formal charter of the local Child Abuse Prevention Council.

The Delaware County Child Abuse Prevention Council is an active council with many community events, support, and commitment of agencies and individuals in working to help children. The purpose of the Delaware County Child Abuse Prevention Council is to prevent child abuse in all of its forms in Delaware County through a county commitment that is comprehensive and broad based. Their mission and philosophy is organized on the belief that no child should be abused or neglected.
