Leave a Legacy


The Child Abuse Prevention Council (CAPC) has a long and rich history in our community of protecting children, strengthening families, and giving hope to those seeking to break the sometimes generational bonds of physical, verbal, sexual, and emotional abuse. For more than 37 years, the CAPC has been a place where parents have learned to be better parents, children have found healing from the wounds of abuse and neglect, and where families have been shown how to improve their quality of life.

Reflecting on CAPC’s rich heritage is our reason for contacting you today. As we continue our quest to protect children and build strong families, we are acutely aware that our continued success depends on long-term planning for our future.

For this reason the CAPC has established the “It’s about the Kids Endowment.” If you would like to give to the endowment or should you have any questions, contact Shauna Buzunis-Jacob who can be reached at (209) 644-5318 or sbjacob@nochildabuse.org

Lindy Turner-Hardin has always rooted for the underdog. She firmly believes in advocating for individuals that do not have the ability or resources to do so themselves. That mentality, along with supportive mentors, led her to her current position as executive director of the CAPC. “I love looking back at my life and seeing how my steps have been very clearly ordered, whether I knew it in the moment or not,” says the fourth generation South-African native who immigrated to America at age 15.

For example, Lindy admits she never had plans to settle in Stockton but chose the Central Valley because her sister had landed here. In an effort to take a break from her hectic career, Lindy came for a temporary stay. Fate, however, works in mysterious ways. “Things change and you try new things and all of a sudden your life is completely different,” she muses. A position with the Human Services Agency helped keep Lindy around. There she was introduced to the world of child welfare, and while on the Mary Graham Children’s Shelter project, discovered just how deep her love of the underdog ran.
