The Justice Center’s abuse prevention efforts are critical to advancing its mission to support and protect the health, safety and dignity of all people with special needs and disabilities. The Spotlight on Prevention - Abuse Prevention Resource Center strives to be a source for up-to-date information, useful guidance and effective tools.

The Justice Center takes a multi-pronged approach to abuse prevention. The agency’s work is informed by a cross-agency Prevention of Abuse and Neglect Work Group and the Justice Center’s Advisory Council.

The Justice Center welcomes suggestions from interested stakeholders on policies and practices to prevent abuse. Suggestions can be sent to: prevention@justicecenter.ny.gov
