For more than 30 years, The Child Abuse Prevention Center has been a national and international training, education, research and resource center dedicated to protecting children and building healthy families. Known as the CAP Center and located in Sacramento, California, it is home to six unique agencies. Each agency takes a different but complementary approach to preventing child abuse by providing an array of programs to build strong families and keep children safe.

Together, our good work is making a difference.
