Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Resources in Arizona

Morrison Institute’s gap analysis looks at communities and their ranking on risk factors and available services to provide information to decision-makers, community organizations, and funders about the strengths and unaddressed need across communities in Arizona.

Morrison Institute considered risk indicators across domains of child well-being – socio-economic status, adverse perinatal outcomes, substance abuse, crime, and child maltreatment – to determine where risks concentrate in Arizona. Identifying where risks concentrate is important because the presence of multiple risk factors can have long term effects on children’s development.
