Do you do prevention?

Child and Family Services Agency (CFSA) is one of the DC government agencies offering financial support to community-based organizations to conduct primary and secondary child abuse and neglect prevention programs and activities.   Another important part of prevention work is to identify prevention programs, especially evidence-based models or promising practices, to protect DC children and youth who may be at risk of involvement with CFSA.

CFSA encourages all organizations in the city engaging in the prevention of child maltreatment to take a brief online survey.

The inventory will allow CFSA and others to identify service gaps and prevent the duplication of efforts by future initiatives.   This is particularly important since CFSA is working to integrate prevention efforts into a long-term strategy to promote healthier child development and stronger families, thereby reducing the risk and incidence of child maltreatment.

Please take the survey today and encourage others to do the same.   The kids are counting on you.
