The focus of our work is PREVENTION. One way to prevent child abuse and neglect is by educating, supporting, and empowering parents.
- We do this by training parents to be leaders within their communities.
- We also do this by facilitating Circle of Parents mutual self-help support groups for parents statewide.
Another way prevent child abuse and neglect is to EDUCATE, SUPPORT, and EMPOWER communities.
- We do this by raising awareness about childhood development and the (often long-term) effects of childhood trauma on the health and well-being of children and families.
- We also do this by facilitating conversations about how communities can strengthen families through healing and resilience-building practices.
We ALL have a role to play in creating environments where children thrive!
