Info Center History
The Arizona Child Abuse Information Center (Info Center) is a website with a 12 year history of providing Arizona citizens with critical information regarding child maltreatment and neglect. Historically run by University of Arizona’s Health Sciences Center (Department of Pediatrics), the Info Center is used as a clearing house for professionals and volunteers involved in the lives of children to learn more about child abuse.

Childhelp ®, a national non-profit for the prevention, intervention, treatment, and advocacy of child abuse and neglect, recently acquired the Arizona Child Abuse Information Center (Info Center). Through the acquisition of the Info Center, Childhelp aims to sustain the services currently offered by the site, as well as expand the services offered, developing it as a proactive tool to prevent abuse from occurring.

The theory behind the Info Center is that the more informed people are, the more effective they will be as a community to protect our children. The Info Center supplies individuals with up-to-date information regarding abuse, legislation, and trainings in order to increase the knowledge and awareness of child abuse in Arizona. Specifically, the resources currently found on the site provide individuals with the information necessary to:

  • Understand the risk factors of child abuse;
  • Recognize and respond to child abuse;
  • Report and document suspected abuse to the appropriate agencies in the community; and
  • Find help or support within their community.
