The Yes ICAN concept of child abuse prevention

Our mission: Working world-wide to break the silence and cycle of abuse.

We believe that the only way we can prevent child abuse and domestic violence is to break the cycle of abused children growing up to become abusers or individuals who are unable to protect their children or themselves because they don't know how.

We believe that we must deal with domestic violence equally along with child abuse because it is clear that domestic violence is a form of child abuse and that many of those who are either victims or abusers of domestic violence were either abused themselves as children or were raised in violent home.

How do we do that?

Yes ICAN believes that the only way to break the cycle is to intervene at all levels of the abuse cycle.
