Insuring the Children is a non-profit organization created by insurance industry leaders with the goal of supporting child abuse prevention programs and raising awareness of child abuse and neglect. Since its inception in 1994, ITC has raised over $650,000 to assist child abuse prevention centers. Only through a united effort of the entire insurance industry can we meet our goal to raise awareness of child abuse and neglect. Our most precious resource, children are the most important asset of any nation. Each of us has a duty to promote a safe and responsible environment for all children. Working together, Insuring The Children encourages the insurance industry to unite in this effort and pool our resources to create a brighter future for our children. There are chapters throughout California and the Midwest.
