Iowa Child Sexual Abuse Prevention and Treatment Resource

Welcome! This site is intended to arm parents, professionals and community members with the knowledge and tools they need to protect and support Iowa's children. It is managed by Prevent Child Abuse Iowa.

This site is an outgrowth of Iowa's first-ever Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Task Force, led by Prevent Child Abuse Iowa. In 2011, legislators and professionals gathered to discuss improvements to laws and school policies to better protect children.
