About LifeNET, Inc, and
The Child Abuse Prevention Network

The Child Abuse Prevention Network is the flagship service of LifeNET (Life Network Engineering Technologies, Inc.) Begun in 1995, the Network now serves over 30,000 visitors a month. While most of our visitors come from the USA, we also have users from over 120 countries around the world. LifeNET has as its motto: Making a World of Difference for Families. The Network is doing that: most of our users are professionals, but many are families. Besides our public websites, we also operate private communities of professionals — on a membership-only basis — in order to assist them in solving complex problems in the field of child abuse.
