Child Abuse Prevention
Six local social service agencies are hosting a collaborative event aimed at increasing awareness of child maltreatment during Child Abuse Prevention Month on April 4. For the Sake of the Children is a joint effort of ACH Child and Family Services, Alliance For Children, CASA of Tarrant County, Gladney Center for Adoption, Lena Pope and The Parenting Center. A panel discussion featuring the chief executive from each organization will explore how each agency and the community can work together to prevent child abuse. It will be followed by a networking hour. The event is an informative kickoff to Child Abuse Prevention Month, offering ways for the community to get involved.
