50 Fund Playmaker: Lakisha Hill and Child Abuse Prevention Council

Our 15th 50 Fund Playmaker is the Child Abuse Prevention Council (CAPC) of Contra Costa County.  The Child Abuse Prevention Council (CAPC) has a long history of working to prevent the abuse and neglect of children for more than 30 years, with programs, services and publications designed to strengthen and support families and communities. 

CAPC has recognized Lakisha Hill as their Playmaker. CAPC’s Child Safety Awareness Coordinator for its Speak Up Be Safe Program, Lakisha is being recognized for her fierce determination and gentle compassion in helping families to be both safe and stable.

“Lakisha is a true advoate for families,” said Julie Stutzman, development director for CAPC. “She embodies the learn-for-yourself-and-give-back-to-the-community ethic that is so important in the prevention of child abuse.”

CAPC will use its Playmaker grant to fund its expansion of the Speak Up Be Safe program, a research-based, comprehensive child abuse prevention education program for more than 700 students in Richmond.

 50 weeks. 50 grants. 50 opportunities to recognize Bay Area residents who are making a difference through their service to our community in celebration of Super Bowl 50. The 50 Fund’s Playmaker program was designed to showcase the real difference Bay Area nonprofits are making in the lives of our children, and people behind the scenes who are making that impact possible. 

Every Tuesday, the 50 Fund – the legacy fund of the San Francisco Bay Area Super Bowl 50 Host Committee – will reveal a new Playmaker and share that nonprofit’s story of inspiration.
