April Is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. In honor of this, Think Kids, in conjunction with the SHIELD Task Force, will host a panel discussion on advancing a data-driven approach to understanding and responding to child maltreatment in West Virginia.
Kids affected by the drug crisis have specific and acute, unmet needs. Parents, grandparents, guardians, doctors, nurses, teachers, bus drivers, camp counselors, coaches, etc.– these community members work with these children, care for them, and have important knowledge that should inform how we, as a state, move forward to address their needs. How is your community responding? That’s what we’d like to learn. This meeting will be a 90-minute listening session– asking questions and listening to you. Refreshments will be provided. Any questions you have can be asked to Kelli Caseman at email@example.com.
