Spring is here and Community Collaboration for Children’s waiting list is growing. CCC has been busy helping families with their needs and trying to get the waiting list down. We are busy planning April Child Abuse Awareness Month. We have pinwheels and signs that will be distributed among our 8 counties. We are having a Trauma Informed Care training April 19th 9:30-12:30 at the Harding County Extension Office. For more information contact April 29th 11-1 CCC Statewide Event held in Frankfort Western Hills High School. We had 30 children send in posters for the CCC Statewide contest. The top three winners went on to the state contest.
