How can our community help protect my child against abuse?

Your community can help protect your child against abuse through the following:
  • Positive school environments: In addition to academic opportunities, schools provide access to a bounty of social programs and opportunities to build on other protective factors.
  • Economic opportunities: Families must have access to necessary resources to ensure the safety, health and well-being of children. Consistent employment, access to adequate health care and access to social services strengthen families and protect children.
As the old adage goes, “It takes a village to raise a child.”

The community around a child protects against abuse and neglect, and through effective support systems children find guidance and safety as they reach toward their full potential.
