Inter-Agency Council on Child Abuse and Neglect (ICAN) was
established in 1977 by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.
ICAN serves as the official county body charged with coordinating
the development of services for the prevention, identification
and treatment of child abuse and neglect. It is the largest
county-based child abuse and neglect network in the nation.
ICAN's Policy Committee is comprised of the heads of twenty-seven
County, City, State and Federal agencies, as well as UCLA,
the Children's Planning Council and five private sector members
appointed by the Board of Supervisors.
The Youth Advisory Council Committee comprised of youth ages
15 - 24 dedicated to working on projects aimed at reducing family
to advise the work of other ICAN committees to ensure that a
youth perspective is included.
