Prevent Child Abuse Newton is a nonprofit agency dedicated to educating parents and the community on child abuse and neglect.

In honor and recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month, Newton County Sheriff's Office and Frank's Restaurant partnered with PCAN to provide meals for the Nurturing Parenting Program participants.

Frank's Restaurant currently holds the contract with NCSO to provide meals to the inmates. However, they wanted to do something outside of their contract to give back to their community.

NCSO and Frank's Restaurant believes in PCAN's mission "to help prevent child abuse and neglect in all its forms by serving as a local clearinghouse for information and strategies to prevent abuse and to sponsor programs to support parents by enhancing their parenting skills.
