Prevent Child Abuse Lake County (PCALC), a chartered council of Prevent Child Abuse Indiana, is an all-volunteer board dedicated to educating our community about what we can do at a local level to prevent child abuse. The board works with other non-profit groups and agencies to further this cause through networking and information sharing.

In recent years, PCALC has made a push to increase our visibility in the community. We have developed new projects that have seen great success thus far in reaching a diverse population. Our mission is to prevent child neglect and abuse through education, increased awareness, and advocacy. Simply put, it should never hurt to be a child.
