Welcome to the nation's leading child personal safety program.
Our mission is to help ensure the personal safety of children and youth through increased awareness, education, advocacy and action. Our goal is to prevent all forms of child victimization by teaching families, professionals and other community members how to recognize, interrupt and report inappropriate behaviors and situations.
