Every adult has a role to play in preventing and ending the unacceptable high rate of incidents of child abuse and neglect in Kentucky. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, concerned neighbor, or someone in the helping professional, we each can take steps to ensure every child can grow up happy, healthy, and hopeful.
1. Volunteering at ONE of the Face It Movement’s partner organizations to support their efforts to prevent and end child abuse.
2. Reaching out to TWO parents or caregivers in your life to offer a helping hand or words of encouragement.
4. Sharing resources with FOUR family members, friends, and neighbors in your life to promote child safety information, tips for mitigating stress among caregivers, and ideas for family engagement activities. BONUS: encourage them to also sign up for regular supportive text messages from Face It by texting FacingIt to 565-25!
The Face It Movement, an initiative founded and funded by Kosair Charities, directly addresses the unacceptable incidences of child abuse and neglect in Kentucky by promoting best practices in child abuse prevention and intervention, building awareness and engaging the community, and advocating for effective policies to improve the child welfare system.
