[ARCHIVED] April is Child Abuse & Neglect Month - How to Develop Supportive Communities

Developing Supportive Communities 

Communities have a great influence in families' lives.  Just as plants are more likely to thrive in a garden with good soil and plenty of sunlight and water, families are more likely to thrive in supportive communities.  A safe place for children to play is one feature of a supportive community.  Other features include the availability of food, shelter, and medical care for families as well as a culture that encourages neighbors to get to know and help each other.   Supportive communities can help build strong families.  

What can you do?  Take Baby Steps, then Small Steps and finally, Big Steps.
