November 2012Vol. 13, No. 10Newsletter on Partnering for Prevention

The spring 2012 issue of the Virginia Child Protection Newsletter (VCPN) focuses on child abuse and neglect prevention efforts through building community partnerships. The issue explores how charitable foundations, the media, and other business partners can help prevention efforts financially and by increasing publicity. Articles provide readers with tips on managing effective partnerships, fundraising, planning a campaign, using social networks as a cost-effective tool, and partnering with various businesses. Partnerships that have developed in Virginia to further child abuse prevention efforts are also highlighted, along with a spotlight article on Child Health Investment Partnerships (CHIP) in Roanoke Valley and its founder, Dr. Douglas Pierce, a child activist.

The Virginia Child Protection Newsletter is published by James Madison University through a contract with the Virginia Department of Social Services and is available on the university's website: (2 MB)
