About the Fund
Protecting Delaware's Children Fund
The Protecting Delaware's Children Fund was established by the Child Protection Accountability Commission (CPAC), to garner revenue to support ongoing child abuse prevention and awareness activities within the state.
Here's how your donation will help...
- Professionals who work with our children will be better prepared to protect our children by learning how to recognize and report child abuse and neglect.
- Citizens statewide will learn the proper actions to take when they are concerned about a child's safety.
