D.C. Children’s Trust Fund (DCCTF) is a public/private partnership established in 1993 through legislation passed by the District of Columbia City Council and authorized by the Mayor. The legislation created a nonprofit organization designed to stimulate innovative programs to prevent child abuse and neglect. The mission of the D.C. Children’s Trust Fund is to foster the well-being of the District’s children and their families by leading the way toward the prevention of child abuse and neglect. DCCTF serves as a catalyst for prevention efforts by leveraging private and governmental resources to provide support and technical assistance to community-based organizations, schools, and churches to strengthen families and thereby reduce the risk of child abuse.
