Sieda’s many programs are observing National Child Abuse Prevention Month through the month of April.
Sieda envisions communities of resilient citizens who are involved, self-reliant, and contribute positively to their families and communities. That means all of our programs strive to support families to make healthier households to prevent child abuse, maltreatment, and neglect. Although it is all of Sieda’s commitment our Family Support Services work daily to achieve the goal of eliminating child abuse. Programs such as Family Development and Self Sufficiency (FaDSS), Maternal Infant Early Childhood Home Visitation (MIECHV), and Parents as Teachers (PAT).
Many events are being held across our service region in support of raising child abuse awareness. Here are a few:
