You’re invited on a journey. Help make your community a place where all children grow up safe, people have jobs and provide for those they love, and families receive the care they deserve. Where everyone knows they belong. People and children in your community want to belong. They want connection where they live and work, where they go to learn and have fun. You have a role and your actions have an impact, especially on children. Close friend. Caring neighbor. Kind coworker. Your role and actions make your community stronger and more nurturing — where all children grow up safe, people have jobs and provide for those they love, and families receive the care they deserve. It’s a place where everyone belongs. What you do, day after day, gives hope for everyone.
Georgia's Division of Family and Children's Services' Prevention and Community Support Section has launched a child abuse prevention campaign. The campaign's call to action asks all of Georgia's citizens to recognize that they have a role to play in building community, strengthening families, and creating nurturing environments for all children across the state.
