ABOUT THE BEAU BIDEN FOUNDATION:
The Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children was established in June 2015 as an operating nonprofit to continue Delaware Attorney General Joseph R. “Beau” Biden III’s commitment to protect children and confront abuse—either at the hands of an adult or a peer. We believe that children should grow up safe and healthy, in a world free from abuse. Our conviction is that violence against children can be prevented by effectively educating adults and children, developing the next generation of child welfare professionals and strengthening child protection laws around the country. The Beau Biden Foundation currently has child abuse prevention programming in 20 states (and growing).
