Prevent Child Abuse Rockdale/Newton exists to prevent child abuse in Rockdale and Newton Counties through awareness, education, and collaboration. PCA Rockdale/Newton provides parent education programs which empower parents and, as a result, reduces the number of abused children and creates stronger, more nurturing families. We are committed to ensuring that all children grow up in safe, loving, nurturing environments free from all forms of abuse, neglect and violence. The role we serve in our community is as the primary and premier provider of parent education programs in our area.
21% of children in Rockdale & Newton Counties live in poverty. The rise in child poverty rates and single-parent households in our county and surrounding counties is a stark reality in which underscores the urgency of our mission. Every child needs a supportive environment to ensure his or her healthy growth and development. However, research has shown that even when family income is held constant, families living in areas of concentrated poverty are more likely to struggle to meet their children's basic material needs. They are more likely to face food hardship, have trouble paying their household costs, and lack health insurance than those living in more affluent areas. Children living in areas of concentrated poverty are also more likely to experience harmful levels of stress and severe behavioral and emotional problems than children overall living in affluent areas. The stress and emotional turmoil these children endure demand our immediate attention.
