Pilgrim Talks: Scott Trotter: Executive Director of the Orange County Child Abuse Prevention Center

March 23rd, 2012 · Comments

Scott Trotter Executive Director

Since August of 2006, Scott Trotter has served as the Executive Director for the Child Abuse Prevention Center. In his role, Scott provides leadership to a volunteer Board of Directors and a staff of over 80 employees. His guidance helps shape the Prevention Center's family focused prevention programs. Scott is committed to fulfilling the Prevention Center's mission of serving at-risk children and families with programs that break the generational cycle of child abuse and family violence.

Scott has long been involved in nonprofit and healthcare organizations, serving key roles at organizations including, Habitat for Humanity and Caremark. His professional experience also includes 18 years of business management at Disney and Ernst and Young. His expertise in strategic planning and organizational leadership are tremendous assets and allows the Prevention Center to reach even more children and families in Orange County.

The Orange County Child Abuse Prevention Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit directly serving at-risk children and families in crisis to prevent and break the generational cycle of child abuse. We value every child's right to grow up in a safe and nurturing home environment. Our programs provide critically needed parenting education, case management, and mental health services to families at-risk of abuse in their own homes. Our programs work with parents to create healthier environments for children, ultimately building stronger families. By providing families with the tools and education they need to build nurturing homes, we are breaking the generational cycle of abuse. One child at a time, one family at a time, we are creating stronger families and healthier communities.

In our community, child abuse statistics are staggering. The Orange County Child Abuse Registry receives more than 100 calls a day reporting cases of child abuse and maltreatment. In 2010, over 18,000 child abuse reports were filed in which over 38,000 children were reported to have suffered physical, emotional, and/or sexual abuse. Sadly, more than 1/3 of abused and neglected children will eventually victimize their own children. Please partner with us to Help Break the Cycle.

Become a Volunteer! Our experience has shown that volunteers find our program to be extremely rewarding and gratifying. We greatly value our volunteers and hope you might consider talking to us about this opportunity to serve our community. Please attend a volunteer orientation to learn more. The next available dates are April 30, June 11, July 30, August 27 and September 24 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Light dinner at 5:30 p.m. Please RSVP to LRomo@BrightFutures4Kids.org.

Chris Cannizzaro
A Young Man With a Passion and a Goal
This is a great story!
Listen to the story of a twenty-year-old young man whose dream was to climb Mt. Everest, even though he had no climbing experience at all. Chris is a demonstration of the truth: If one person in the world can do something, anyone can do it if he/she has two things: an unstoppable desire and access to someone who has done and can teach hi /her how to do it.
You will hear what unstoppable passion sounds like. It means choosing to do or die all the way up and down big mountains.
The book Transcend chronicles Chris's journey. Get a FREE copy at Meridian Graphics.
