The Inter-Agency Council on Child Abuse and Neglect is comprised of Los Angeles County City, State and Federal Agencies, as well as community organizations, and individuals from the private sector. ICAN's mission is to coordinate the development of services for the prevention, identification and treatment of child abuse and neglect throughout Los Angeles County.
ICAN is involved in numerous Programs and Committees such as the Safe Sleeping for Infants Campaign, Youth Mentoring Collaborative, and the California Hospital Network Project dedicated to improving the well being of children. ICAN also sponsors two annual conferences: The Childhood Grief Conference and Nexus: Violence Within the Home and its Effects on Children. ICAN also creates and publishes numerous reports, guidelines and training materials such as the Child Death Review Team Report, the Child Abuse and Neglect Protocol, and the CalEMA Severe Injury Investigation Guidelines which encourage inter-agency cooperation between county agencies in the quest to elminate child abuse.
