BENEFITING: Prevent Child Abuse - New Jersey Chapter, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Oct 28, 2017
I am fortunate to work for an excellent non-profit organization that works every day to prevent child abuse and neglect. As a parent with very young children I know first hand the stress involved with parenting, working and doing our best to help our children to have a GREAT CHILDHOOD. Fortunately, we have a support system to help us with the everyday challenges because the old adage is true - it truly does take a village to raise a child. Many families in NJ do not have the resources to provide for their children's basic needs and may have challenges with depression, addiction or family violence. Prevent Child Abuse-NJ supports vulnerable families with research-based programs that help parents meet their children's needs. I truly believe in the mission of our work and know that it does make a difference for children and families.
