Reducing Child Abuse and Neglect

All children need a safe home so that they can grow into healthy and responsible adults. Children in families who are struggling with violence or addiction are more likely to be abused or neglected.  By addressing those issues that put families into crisis (substance abuse, domestic violence and mental health), we can tackle child safety on the front end and keeping families together, when possible.
