April is national child abuse prevention month! Remember, it’s the responsibility of adults like us to keep children safe.
A YEAR OF RECKONING WITH EPIDEMICS When the Disease is Child Abuse, What is the Cure? Dear Partner, April is here once again. This time last year, we were just beginning to stay home to prevent Covid’s spread. We couldn’t yet know what a far-reaching impact this disease would have on our lives. A year later, over 500,000 American lives have been lost, and many more have been severely compromised by the pandemic’s effects on nearly every aspect of family and civic life.

Dear Partner, We hope this finds you and your loved ones safe and well. Although sheltering-in-place may help to flatten the curve when it comes to COVID-19, home isn’t always a safe place for everyone. Now more than ever, we all need to be helpers for the most vulnerable around us.
