About Us

Our goal is to build a resilient community.

The Madera County Child Abuse Prevention Council (MCCAPC) is an organization that began in 1986. We became a non-profit agency in November of 2002. For 35 years, MCCAPC has provided a forum of preventative services and activities. In addition, our organization has established partnerships and collaborative relationships with other agencies in the community to improve the lives and well being of children and families throughout Madera County.

To make a greater impact in the central valley, MCCAPC is also a part of a greater whole, and is a member of the Central California Coalition of Child Abuse Prevention Councils. MCCAPC could not perform these services without its collaborative partners and members.

Vision

We want our community to understand the long term effects of child abuse and neglect. To achieve this goal we ensure that parents have the skills and resources needed to care for their children in order to make Madera County a better place for all children and families. We will continue to bring awareness to our cause in hopes of preventing future child abuse cases.

Mission

To support community efforts in the prevention, intervention and treatment of child abuse by promoting and facilitating education that strengthens, empowers, and preserves the dignity of individuals and families.

Debbie
Pacheco

Treasurer

I firmly believe that children are our society’s most vulnerable members. We must protect them and educate others on how to spot child abuse or neglect in our community. Every choice we make will impact our future – since children are the future and have a right to grow up in a safe environment.

By nature, I like to care for others and hope we can improve our community. Our actions or inaction can significantly impact these little ones, and I take pride in knowing that I am a member of this board that shares similar values.
