April is Child Abuse Awareness Month, so it's the perfect time to talk about a new partnership that is forming to address the community's response to children that have experienced or been exposed to domestic violence.
The committee formed by the partnership will include social service case workers, health care providers, law enforcement professionals, victim advocates, prosecutors, and service providers. It will design a plan to improve the community's response to domestic violence situations involving children, and the committee hopes to begin meeting regularly as early as May.
The Post and Courier has a great report on the partnership; read it here.
