ACT: Parents Raising Safe Kids

The ACT for Strong Families program is housed at and coordinated by the Violence Prevention Office (VPO) in the American Psychological Assocation (APA) Public Interest Directorate. The ACT program mission is to mobilize communities and educate families to create safe, nurturing, healthy environments that protect children and youth from violence and its consequences. APA is committed to making psychological knowledge and findings on violence prevention available for communities, organizations, and professionals in order to help families apply them in their daily lives. In Allegheny County, the County Department of Human Services Safe Start Program supervised the ACT program in conjunction with the United Way of Allegheny County.
