April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.

This morning we joined Dallas CAPCO partner organizations for the reading of a proclamation by Commissioner Theresa Daniel, Ph.D. in recognition of the occasion. It was incredibly meaningful to stand alongside our prevention and intervention partners in observance of this significant month. We thank our elected officials at Dallas County Commissioners Court for their continued support.

Family Compass CEO Ona Foster shared updates on our work alongside remarks made by other Dallas CAPCO (Child Abuse Prevention Coalition) organizations.

So great to stand alongside you!
