About Us

The history of Pathways to Hope for Children (PHC) dates back to November 1987, when the Legislature mandated the creation of an entity whose sole purpose is to target the prevention and early intervention of abusive behaviors toward children and plays an active role in responding to the Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act. Pathways to Hope for Children was founded as the Shasta County Child Abuse Prevention Council and in 2016 changed our name to the Shasta County Child Abuse Prevention Coordinating Council. Since the late 1980’s we have partnered with many organizations to reduce child abuse and child maltreatment in our community. In 2019 the organization’s focus on creating pathways to hope and healing for children and families lead to a more positive name… Pathways to Hope for Children. We are still the areas child abuse prevention coordinating council doing the same great work, now our name reflects the positive direction our children are focused on…healing and hope!
