Providing a More Promising Future for Children

Kempe is partnering with policy makers, human service agencies, child advocacy groups and nonprofits locally and around the nation and globe to prevent child abuse and neglect and to treat victims of abuse and neglect.

For 40 years, The Kempe Foundation has provided the education, advocacy and fundraising to support the The Kempe Center. Through the work we do under our four CARE pillars – clinical care, advocacy, research and education – we are a part of a game-changing, paradigm shift in the way we think about, talk about and treat child abuse and neglect as a public health crisis.

Kempe is the only organization of its kind to partner with a children’s hospital and research university to address the issues of child abuse and neglect.
