Northampton County Children, Youth and families Division seeks to reach its mission of protecting children through prevention and intervention. The main difference between prevention and intervention is that prevention targets the population that is at risk for abuse and neglect. Intervention works with families who are already involved with CYF.
Prevention is the proactive process that empowers individuals and systems to create conditions that promote the well-being of people. Prevention is more than education and goes well beyond the individual, it is a community effort.
