Child maltreatment prevention and response is a complex issue. Responsibility for prevention efforts and corresponding promotion of child wellbeing is shared across multiple agencies and programs in the child welfare system. CPCM brings unity to the work. The three pillars of our work are:
- Know: Building knowledge of best practices, data, and research.
- Respond: Fostering multidisciplinary response and intervention.
- Prevent: Uniting South Dakotans in prevention efforts by creating trauma-informed communities.
