Child Protection Team

In our region, the need for specialized child abuse care is particularly great. To address this need, The Center for the Protection of Children (CPC) brings together the superb clinical resources of Penn State Children’s Hospital and the rich scholarship of Penn State’s Departments of Humanities, Health and Human Development, Psychology, Public Health Sciences, and the Network on Child Protection and Wellbeing.


What could your gift do?

Outside of the CPC, there is no other health care center in central Pennsylvania that integrates mental and medical health services for child abuse victims. 

Your gift will help us enhance clinical services, educate future healthcare professionals to better detect and treat child abuse, and facilitate new initiatives to recognize and report child abuse.
