National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect (NCCAN) offers an exceptional opportunity to connect and learn about nationwide efforts to shift the focus of the child welfare system to primary prevention —creating the conditions for strong and thriving families and communities where children are free from child abuse and neglect.
Sponsored by the Office on Child Abuse and Neglect, Children’s Bureau, Administration on Children, Youth and Families, the 22nd NCCAN will provide a forum for leadership and action centered dialogue around this year's conference theme, “Thriving Children and Families: Prevention with Purpose.”

The Children's Bureau, within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, funds the National Child Abuse Prevention Month initiative each April on the Child Welfare Information Gateway.
