Learn about what it takes to address child abuse fatalities through a collaborative, community-based approach. For nearly four years, five different sites located across the country have been working to advance child and family well-being systems and shared responsibility in their communities.
Through Child Safety Forward, a demonstration initiative funded by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime, the five sites and Social Current as the initiative’s technical assistance provider, have been applying, testing, and evaluating different strategies. Now in their fourth year, the sites will discuss their successes and lessons learned.
They will share a new model for doing things differently to better support families, keep children safe in their homes, and implement a public health approach that is proactive rather than reactive.
