Your donations support SJPC’s work in our local communities to strengthen families at risk of child abuse and neglect and protect children by providing parenting education and resource support. SJPC promotes positive parenting to Educate the Parent, Protect the Child.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 1 in 7 children in the US suffers abuse or neglect every year. With over 200,000 Fairfield County residents reported under age 18 in the 2020 Census, this suggests over 30,000 Fairfield County children are abused every year. SJPC works to address the significant unmet need of our underserved and underrepresented families from existing SJPC community centers in Stamford and Danbury.
We are grateful for the essential support of our donors. The need and urgency to protect children is clear and pressing. We invite you to learn about SJPC and support our mission to promote positive parenting and protect local children from abuse and neglect. Thank you!
