Prevention Packet Available Soon
Promoting Healthy Families in Your Community: 2007 Resource Packet will be available in mid-March for ordering or downloading from the Child Welfare Information Gateway website. This year's packet is designed to support professionals in their work with families and communities and includes five parenting tipsheets, in English and Spanish, that professionals can share with families.
The packet represents the next step in the movement among child maltreatment prevention professionals to emphasize strengthening families and communities to ensure children’s well-being. Over the last several years, prevention professionals have moved away from a narrow focus on identifying and reporting maltreatment and toward a broader focus that includes building the capacity of parents and communities to keep children safe in their own homes and neighborhoods.
