Stronger Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (Stronger CAPTA)
I’m in strong support of and recommend the passage of the House Bill H.R. 2480 AKA the “Stronger Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (Stronger CAPTA)” which would seek to strengthen the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) to combat rising rates of child maltreatment due to the opioid crisis. This bill would provide strategic funding to build networks of prevention services to strengthen families to improve child protective services’ quality.
The opioid epidemic has devastated families, causing cases of child maltreatment to spike in recent years. It’s important that the federal government funds programs to ensure children aren’t harmed due to their parents’ or caregivers’ addiction.
