April is Child Abuse Prevention Month; it gives Family & Children’s Place an opportunity to bring awareness to a very serious problem in which Kentucky and Indiana both face.
Kentucky ranks 6th and in Indiana they rank 11th when it comes to child abuse and/or neglect.
Pam Darnall, President/CEO for Family & Children’s Place is available for interviews to discuss the latest Child Fatality & Near Fatality Report, services provided by the organization and how the community can identify signs of child abuse and neglect.
Darnall can also share information on our upcoming event, Champions for Children Breakfast. It will take place on Thursday, April 20th at the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage at 8:00 am.
To setup an interview, contact VIPP Communications at 502-341-7306 or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be happy to arrange your request.
