The new year brings such great hope and opportunity, like a cleaned house or a fresh set of sheets, you sigh a breath of fresh air and feel a little joy within. I do hope this year lends the same strength and joy to each of you. Our last year at EndCAN was filled with so many new connections, improvements, conversations, and voices being heard. I can only imagine what the future will bring and I thank each and every one of you for being in this with us. Our goals for 2020 are to expand our outreach, find more voices to gather, and support advancements for understanding, preventing and educating people on child abuse and neglect. 

Wishing you all well!


Lori Poland, Founding Executive Director

You may have been thinking about making a New Year’s resolution. A specific goal you wish to reach. We encourage you to help change the lives and outcomes of children and families this year, by TAKING THE PLEDGE to end child abuse and neglect. 

We need 10,000 signatures and your commitment to help us end it.

Unite your voice and take the pledge today! 



A HUGE thank you for all the support last year to help end child abuse and neglect. We reached 77% of our goal! We're so grateful for your generosity and continued effort to help children live safe and happy lives, now and in the future.

In 2020, EndCAN will use your contributions to: 

  • Provide a safe space for survivors to be heard, unite their voices, and help us end child abuse and neglect. 
  • Fund the additional research needed on prevention, clinical treatments, education and training. 
  • Collaborate with and support more organizations across North America, to collectively work together and advance the field of child abuse and neglect. 
  • Expand community-based child abuse prevention programs that we know make a difference in stopping abuse in its tracks.
  • Change the conversation and break the silence surrounding child abuse and neglect through national public awareness campaigns. 

We still need your help to reach our goal and cross the finish line. All donations directly fund these initiatives. 

The best is yet to come, and together we can end it!
