CHILD USA is the leading non-profit think tank working to end child abuse and neglect in the United States. CHILD USA engages in high-level legal, social science, and medical research and analysis to derive the best public policies to end child abuse and neglect. Unlike an organization engaged in the direct delivery of services, CHILD USA produces evidence-based solutions and information needed by policymakers, organizations, media, and society as a whole to increase child protection and the common good. CHILD USA’s mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect and to help kids stay kids. #SoKidsStayKids
