Prioritizing Child Maltreatment Prevention: A Toolkit for NC DSS Agencies

Prioritizing Child Maltreatment Prevention: A Toolkit for Strengthening NC’s Children & Families

Prevent Child Abuse NC recently launched a new, statewide public awareness campaign specifically for NC DSS agencies. This public awareness campaign, made possible by NC DHHS, can help DSS agencies prioritize, reframe, and align efforts for child maltreatment prevention. 

Visit the Campaign Toolkit

All DSS employees are encouraged to learn about the new public awareness campaign by watching this recording of our training introducing the campaign and toolkit.

About the Campaign Toolkit:

This public awareness campaign, made possible by NC DHHS, can help DSS agencies prioritize, reframe, and align efforts for child maltreatment prevention across the seven DSS regions. The campaign toolkit includes research-based messaging, information about effective child maltreatment prevention strategies, and materials to help DSS agencies create a shared vision, understanding, and messaging around child maltreatment prevention. All DSS employees are encouraged to review the toolkit and implement it within their agency and communities throughout the year. If you have any questions, please contact PCANC’s Director of Communications and Marketing, Kris Demers by email kdemers@preventchildabusenc.org or by phone: 919.829.8009 ext. 619.

Family Support Awareness Month Toolkit - February 2024

February 2024

Family Support Awareness Month is an opportunity to share the work of family support programs in your community, advocate for increased investment in family support programs and build relationships with other family support programs in your community and across the state.

 

Parent Leadership Month Toolkit - February 2024

Parent Leadership Month – February 2024

Parents Anonymous, Inc. established National Parent Leadership Month in February to recognize the important role parents play in their communities. Parent leaders represent the “parent voice” and are strong advocates for all families in their community. They provide input into family support program and community decisions and serve as role models and resources for other parents; thereby enhancing factors proven to prevent abuse and neglect. Empowering parents to take leadership roles in their communities not only strengthens the individual parent and his or her family, it also improves outcomes for all children.
