Janay Eustace is the President and CEO of the Child Abuse Prevention Center, in Sacramento, CA.

The mission of The Child Abuse Prevention Center is to prevent child abuse and neglect through a spectrum of prevention at the local, statewide, and national level. Janay was previously the Executive Director of California Youth Connection (CYC). She has worked for the California Welfare Directors Association (CWDA) and as the Quality Parenting Initiative (QPI) Champion and Youth Engagement Lead at the Youth Law Center.

One of the many accomplishments Janay is proud of is helping execute the California Fostering Connections to Success Act nationally and implementation across the State of California. Janay is committed to ensuring the integrity of prevention frameworks that are fundamentally rooted in diversity, with a community-led partnership.
