"Preventing Child Abuse and Improving Responses to Families in Crisis"

Preventing child abuse and families in crisis was the topic of a November 5 congressional hearing.

U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY), chair of the House Subcommittee on Healthy Families and Communities (a subcommittee of the House Committee on Education and Labor), convened "Preventing Child Abuse and Improving Responses to Families in Crisis" to examine best practices to prevent child abuse and neglect and ways to strengthen and improve services for families in crisis.   Materials from the hearing, and an archived webcast, are on the committee's Web site.

Taking a look at the testimony is worth the time.   The testimony from witnesses from local and national organizations, including the CDC and American Humane Association, resonates in the District.
