Child Abuse Prevention Education

CAPE (Child Abuse Prevention Education) Programs consist of a variety of programs uniquely designed and tailored to meet the needs of the Great Lakes Bay Region.  The Child Abuse Prevention Education Program works to find ways to prevent child abuse through education programs and collaborative efforts within the community.
