About Us A Local Council of Prevent Child Abuse Georgia

Prevent Child Abuse Bulloch has been serving the Bulloch County and surrounding communities since 1989. From the beginning, the agency’s focus has been on strengthening families in order to prevent child abuse and neglect. All programs and services offered are free of charge.

Prevent Child Abuse Bulloch is directly or indirectly touching a sizeable majority of the community by providing diapers for a family in need, referrals to community resources for a family that is overwhelmed, school supplies for a child to have a great school year or by providing much needed information on child development to a parent. Each time that Prevent Child Abuse Bulloch’s work touches an individual or family, not only is that individual or family strengthened—the entire community is strengthened.
