Child Protection

The process for this initiative began with a survey of stakeholders conducted this summer, and continues to evolve to include facilitated focus group sessions scheduled for late September, followed by a community meeting of stakeholders which will be convened on November 4, 2015.

The goal of the focus groups is to collect information from experts in the local child protection system regarding current priorities, needs, gaps in services, best practices, etc.  The focus group members will analyze an executive summary of survey data collected from nearly 90 respondents, and a format for the November 4 community meeting will be developed, which will likely involve a full day of programming.
