Our theme this year was Partnering to Prevent Child Abuse: Building a Brighter Future. We are lucky to work in a community where different organizations partner to help keep children safe. A few of the partnerships highlighted during the month are listed below (and by no means includes all the agencies and individuals who play a role in supporting families).
Family Resource Center: In-home parent education and support to families
Harbin Clinic: Pediatricians address child health care needs/wellness
Rome/Floyd County Commission on Children & Youth: Community education and training
Sexual Assault Center: Education to prevent sexual abuse/violence
Hospitality House: Education to youth and community to prevent family violence
Harbor House: Community education to prevent child sexual abuse
Scroll down to see a few pictures and note that it's not too late to join "The Walk" on April 28th hosted by SAC and Harbor House. Help close out the month---simply meet at noon in front of City Hall.
