ICAN Associates is a private, non-profit corporation that works in partnership with ICAN. Its Board of Directors consists of business, media and community leaders. This organization addresses the important issues identified by ICAN through the provision of services and materials, including the sponsorship and coordination of media campaigns, community educational forums and projects, special events, newsletters and funding. Further, ICAN Associates provides support for direct and indirect services to prevent child abuse and enables integration and collaboration among child service agencies.
This strong, multi-level, multidisciplinary and community network provides a framework through which ICAN is able to identify those issues critical to the well-being of children and families. With limited resources available, ICAN develops strategies to implement programs that will improve the community’s collective ability to meet the needs of abused, neglected and at-risk children. The work of ICAN has received national recognition as a model for inter-agency coordination for the protection of children. In 1996, ICAN was designated as the National Center on Child Fatality Review (ICAN/NCFR).
