Compelling research makes the case for the importance of father engagement, but sometimes it’s not as easy to do as we would like. In this Digital Dialogue, we will be bringing together fatherhood practitioners from around the country to discuss some of the bigger challenges when trying to effectively engage fathers—and the solutions that work. We’ll be discussing issues ranging from gatekeeping, addressing conflict between parents, dealing with addiction, challenging anti-father bias, and recruiting and retaining men.

Lafayette-Regional Child Abuse & Neglect Prevention Town Hall Meeting (Thu. 13 Jun, 2019 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm)

Lafayette-Regional Child Abuse & Neglect Prevention Town Hall Meeting

Prevention is the best hope for reducing child abuse and neglect and improving the lives of children and families. Strengthening families and preventing child abuse requires a shared commitment of individuals and organizations in  every community, particularly in the State of Louisiana. According to the Louisiana Child Death Review Report, from 2014-2016, 2,208 children died, and 717 of those deaths were due to injury. Between 2014-2016, Louisiana had the highest rate of mortality for children ages 1-14 in the United States. About one-third of infant and childhood deaths in Louisiana are due to injury and are potentially preventable.
Effective prevention efforts are critical to ensuring the immediate and long-term safety and well-being of children in       Louisiana. Your voice in preparing our State Plan is vital! Within the Plan we will include recommendations and ideas shared by YOU our stakeholders and partners. Your suggestions will assist us in mapping out a plan to build our communities by connecting families with resources as we continue to support parenting education, home and hospital visitation programs, train volunteers and service providers and collaborate with community based service organizations to ensure the safety and well-being of our most valuable asset…..our children!
