The long-term mission of the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Task Force is to unite our community to reduce the amount of abuse and neglect that our children face. This is accomplished through public awareness programs, prevention programs, advocacy, membership campaigns and networking with related agencies.
Project Safe & Growing
A day treatment program for children ages 3-6 who have been identified as victims of crime. Project Safe & Growing is funded through the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA).
The Kristine Nagy-Johnson (KNJ) Awards acknowledge the efforts of community members who go above and beyond the call of duty to stop the cycle of child abuse.
Reno Kids Kite Festival
The Reno Kids Kite Festival is a joyous, fun, family oriented event that helps build awareness for child abuse prevention. CAN Prevent partners each year with the Reno Media Group to bring the event to our community.
The Annual CAN Prevent/Child Safety Conference is designated to bring top rated speakers to our community to address critical issues in and around the topic of child abuse and neglect.
