What is ICAN?
     The 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 violence. Council also helps to advise the work of other ICAN committees to ensure that a youth perspective is included.
