About Us

Our Objective

Empowering Change: Protecting Lives, Transforming Futures

The main objective of Project Prevention is public awareness to the problem of addicts/alcoholics exposing their unborn child to drugs during pregnancy.

Project Prevention seeks to reduce the burden of this social problem on taxpayers, trim down social worker caseloads, and alleviate from our clients the burden of having children that will potentially be taken away.

Unlike incarceration, Project Prevention extremely cost effective and does not punish the participants.

We seek and welcome alliances with all sectors of our communities including drug treatment programs, hospitals, social service departments, among others, and have established such contacts throughout the United States.

Project Prevention does not have the resources to combat the national problems of poverty, housing, nutrition, education and rehabilitation services. Those resources we do have are spent to PREVENT a problem for $300 rather than paying millions after it happens in cost to care for a potentially damaged child.

Our Goals

We have helped 8,027 addicts obtain long term birth control. These women reported having 5,540 abortions with 16 having 10 or more abortions. On average, these women have 3 abortions and 3 births.

What We Do:

  • Reduce the number of abortions.
  • Reduce the number of children placed in foster care.
  • Reduce costs to states and federal government.

How We Do It:

We promote long term birth control to addicts. On average, this should avoid at least 1 abortion and 1 birth.

What Are the Cost Savings?:

The cost of a foster child from age 1 to 17 averages about $250,000 with federal government providing $10 billion in 2023.

Major Milestones

January 2012 marks a major milestone for Project Prevention – 8,000 women, severely addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, took part in our unique program paying them cash for long term or permanent birth control.
The price of suffering is extreme. Imagine each of the 8,000 addicts becoming pregnant just one more time:

  • 8,000 babies would inevitably be subjected to abortion, miscarriage, stillborn, or death after birth.
  • For the infants that live, it is almost certain they will enter into an endless life cycle of foster care, not to mention the struggle to recover from the endless withdrawal effects of drugs and alcohol forced on their tiny bodies, often resulting in permanent disabilities.

The pain and suffering also extends to unknowing taxpayers who pull from their wallets $1,123,200,000 (One billion one hundred and twenty three million two hundred thousand) to $2,592,000,000

(Two billion five hundred and ninety two million)

for every 8,000 children born to addicts that remain in foster care, or receive adoption aid assistance for 18 years.

In contrast, Project Prevention spent $2,400,000 to prevent additional disastrous pregnancies in 8,000 drug/alcohol addicted women. We realize we cannot put any price on the human suffering, but we also know that for every 8,000 infants that we prevent from being conceived by addicts/alcoholics who are actively using, leaves millions of taxpayer dollars to be used for drug treatment and other causes.
