Community Collaboration for Children

Providing struggling families with the tools and resources they need to improve family stability and safety is our highest priority. We know that with guidance and encouragement, parents from all backgrounds and situations can become the best version of themselves, and in turn inspire their children to lead enriched and fulfilling lives.

Through the Community Collaboration for Children program, we focus on the prevention of child abuse and neglect while strengthening the power of families and encouraging communities to work together for the well-being of families.

The assistance we provide includes everything from helping to obtain housing and improving household cleanliness to improving budgeting skills and building positive relationships with schools. We also focus our support on improving parenting skills, teaching age appropriate discipline, ensuring family safety and encouraging active communication skills.

Want to get involved? Share your voice through your local Regional Network as a parent member.

Regional Network

More than 40 strong, the Regional Network is comprised of concerned and active citizens from all areas of the Lincoln Trail region who come together to increase awareness of child abuse and neglect. Through activities such as the annual Child Abuse Awareness Walk and the Darkness to Light Child Sexual Abuse Training, the Regional Network is working to empower individuals through knowledge and support.

The Regional Network meets regularly to make funding decisions about activities and programs that focus on prevention of child abuse and neglect. Parent representatives from across the region are needed to help ensure the needs of every community are met. Let your voice be heard and make a difference in the lives of families in your community. Contact the Regional Network Coordinator today at (270) 692-7553.

Regional Networks partner with community agencies to provide programming and activities. Active parent members from local Regional Networks may also attend statewide meetings, creating additional opportunities for sharing, training and information gathering.
