We’re Going on the Road to Hear from You!
The last Child Abuse & Neglect Prevention Plan for the state of Georgia was released in 1993, 26 YEARS AGO! Do you remember what you were doing in 1993? Were some of you even born yet? View 1993 Plan.
Leaders from across Georgia’s state departments and nonprofit agencies have joined with the Prevention and Community Support Section (DFCS) and Prevent Child Abuse Georgia to update the state’s Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Plan. This is a collaborative effort that represents all of the agencies, organizations, and individuals who want to see a decrease in Georgia’s child maltreatment rates. We invite you to attend a regional meeting to help us.
Let’s create a unified agenda to collectively strengthen Georgia’s families!
Whether you are able to attend an in-person meeting or not, please take a moment to give your input for the development of the state Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Plan.
