Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We want to be able to fully staff with medical and mental health providers that can respond to all child abuse cases in the counties and communities that we serve.

We are seeking partnerships with other agencies that have similar goals. We are open to share staff and resources to make this goal a reality.

We are in a great space to be able to partner and provide these needed services if we continue to grow our funding sources.

We have added 4 counties and communities to our service area. We are on our way to accomplishing our goal.
