Welcome to the Child Abuse Prevention Council of Warren County web page. Together, we can make a difference in preventing child abuse.
Our mission, in partnership with communities in Warren County, is to provide support, instruction, and services to families to prevent child abuse.
The Child Abuse Prevention Council operates the Wee Care Respite Nursery, the Young Parents information and support program and a Sexual Abuse Prevention Program in Warren County, Iowa. The council also coordinates community awareness about child abuse and the importance of prevention. In 2009, the council began working with Warren County Public Health, Child Care Resource and Referral and Simpson College to create the Shaken Baby Prevention Partnership. As a result of this collaboration, the partnership now offers educational presentations designed to increase awareness, and to prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome by teaching participants how to cope with a crying baby.
Reporting Abuse in Iowa: If you suspect child abuse, please call 1-800-362-2178.
