Promoting Healthy Childhoods

Every day, on average, 13 new cases of child abuse and neglect are reported in Kalamazoo County. A fourth of those cases demand immediate intervention. Many more cases are never reported. Consider these facts:


  • Nearly 80% of abuse victims can develop psychiatric disorders by age 21, such as depression, chronic anxiety, eating disorders and PTSD
  • Child abuse survivors are almost four times more likely to become drug addicts or alcoholics
  • 36% of women and 14% of men in prison were abused as children
  • Some abused children become abusers themselves later in life, continuing a cycle of pain​


Preventing abuse is key to solving this very real and growing problem. Support KCAN today to help us reverse the cycle of abuse!
