For Over 37 Years, Long Island's Leading Non-Profit Organization Dedicated to Preventing Bullying and Child Abuse

Preventing Abuse Through Education

The best way to reduce the damage of child abuse and neglect is to prevent child abuse and neglect—and educating children, their parents, teachers, school professionals and the community is the key to prevention.

Since 1982, CAPS and its corps of committed volunteers – each professionally and extensively trained by CAPS in the various areas of child abuse and neglect—have reached more than 650,000 Long Islander students with its prevention through education programs. Each has been enriched and broadened over time to reflect the changing needs of the community and the changing scope of the abuse and neglect issue.
