The Long Beach Area Child Trauma Council was founded in 1975—the first such Council in California and the second in the United States. We spearheaded the creation of the California Consortium of Child Abuse Councils and earned a strong reputation as a leading voice in child abuse prevention. In July 1996, The Child Trauma Council merged with the local Domestic Violence Council to become The Child Abuse and Domestic Violence Prevention Council. The Council was incorporated in 1993. In June, 2005, the Council renamed itself, End Abuse Long Beach

A Message about COVID-19 from our Board of Directors

April 1, 2020

Good afternoon EALB community-

Since we last met a lot has changed in our community and lives as a result of COVID-19. As we continue to monitor these changes and the impact they are having on our community, our agencies, and clients End Abuse Long Beach will continue to find ways to support and stay connected to our members via our website and social media platforms. Although we will not be meeting in person in April due to the Safer at Home order, we will be promoting alternative educational opportunities through the use of past programs on YouTube, posting articles and relevant information, and community resource sharing. We are also exploring options for virtual programming- watch for details on these upcoming events on Facebook and our website.

If you have a learning opportunity, a resource, or an inspiring story from your agency or community we’d love to include that on our sites, please direct message us on Facebook or email us at president@endabuselb.org.

Thank you all for your continued support and for your good work in the community. While we encourage you to stay connected we hope that you will remain safe and informed. For the most up to date information about COVID-19 in Long Beach you can simply click the button below.
