Enhancing Child and Family Well Being: The Power of Prevention
Strengthening families is the key to preventing child abuse and neglect. This presentation will explore the costs and impacts of child abuse on families and communities – and the movement toward investing in prevention across the nation and in California. Participants will hear concrete examples from two counties that demonstrate how prevention strategies are working to strengthen families and combat racial and social inequities. Additionally, participants will learn about the funding strategies and partnership opportunities that all counties can utilize to support prevention efforts now and into the future.
