FCCTF is the designated child abuse prevention agency in Franklin County. We see the prevention of child sexual abuse as of the utmost importance. The developmentally targeted PCAVT Healthy Relationships Project utilizes health-focused strategies that match children and youth’s social-emotional level and increase protective factors such as communication skills, empathy and knowledge of support systems, eliminating the messaging that puts the burden on children to protect themselves without regard to both the developmental levels of children and the dynamics of abuse.
A program grounded in research that has identified the important Protective Factors that strengthen every growing family.
