On a recent visit to the Children’s Advocacy Center of Northeastern Pennsylvania, Peter Danchak, Northeast PA Regional President of PNC Bank, presented Mary Ann LaPorta, Executive Director, with a check to support education on child abuse and prevention. “We are grateful to the PNC Foundation for their continued support of initiatives that improve the quality of life of our region’s children,” said Mrs. LaPorta. “This grant strengthens CAC/NEPA’s education program directed to those associated with the welfare of children and the medical community on the prevention of child maltreatment as well as the recognition of the symptoms, and signs, and the reporting of child abuse.“


When it comes to making a difference in improving children’s lives, there is a place for everyone to contribute. Child abuse and neglect is a community problem. Child care and protection is a community responsibility.
