You Can Help Prevent Abuse & Neglect.
Research has shown that
parents and caregivers who have support - from family, friends, neighbors and their communities-are more able
and likely to provide safe, healthy homes for their children. When parents feel alone or isolated and lack support they may be more
likely to make poor decisions that can lead to abuse or neglect.
How Can You Help?

Be an active community member - volunteer at your local school, community group or faith based organization.
Keep your neighborhood safe - Participate in Neighborhood Watch or National Night Out.
