Social Connections are more important than ever...
Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky knows social connections are key to preventing child abuse and neglect. To help make staying connected despite physical distance a little easier, we have developed this "Hey Neighbor!" Card Give this to your neighbor, a family who just moved in or someone you may think needs encouragement. We are all in this together.
During this time of instability, it is important to provide children support, security and HOPE. Check out this blog post from Dr. Bob Sege, MD to learn more about HOPE-informed approaches to the restrictions from COVID-19.
