Prevent Child Abuse Iowa
Prevent Child Abuse Iowa's program will place 11 AmeriCorps members in communities throughout the state to assist local efforts to prevent child abuse. Members will conduct 325 outreach efforts and presentations to enhance community engagement in local prevention efforts. At the end of this period, 1,000 volunteers will have contributed 3,000 hours of service, with 40 of those volunteers assuming leadership positions in the community organizations where members served. The program will focus on the health area. The $139,700 requested will leverage at least $170,000 in private and public funding.
