Child Welfare & Child Protection

It is estimated that there are 3.3 to 10 million children who witness the abuse of a parent or adult care giver each year. A majority of the studies done on the co-occurrence of domestic violence and child maltreatment reveal that there are adult and child victims in 30 to 60 percent of families experiencing domestic violence. This co-occurrence has compelled child welfare and domestic violence programs across the nation to re-evaluate their services and interventions with families experiencing both forms of abuse. FCADV’s Child Protection Investigations (CPI) Project represents a collaborative effort between FCADV, the Department of Children and Families (DCF), the Office of the Attorney General (OAG), local certified domestic violence centers, community-based care agencies, and other child welfare professionals that provide an optimal coordinated community response to families experiencing the co-occurrence of domestic violence and child abuse.
