Investing in Children and Families
This webinar is hosted by Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children
When we make investments in children and families, the next generation will pay it back through a lifetime of productivity and responsible citizenship. When we don’t attend to important aspects of child development now, there are serious consequences later. This means we need to invest in the kinds of policies and programs that prevent child abuse and neglect. Foster care, clinical treatment and other professional interventions are more costly and produce less desirable outcomes than nurturing, protective relationships and appropriate experiences earlier in life.
