CTF funds the Families Support Project in Pemiscott and Dunklin Counties through the Community Based Child Abuse and Prevention Grant (CBCAP). The project was recently featured in the Daily Dunklin Democrat. It’s just one example of how an organization can give at risk families a better chance at healthy relationships. In addition to teaching skills caregivers need, the Families Support Project is a resource for tangible needs like safe cribs, car seats and vaccinations. Read more about the project here.
CTF, along with partners Missouri KidsFirst and ParentLink, have been welcoming visitors to the Missouri State Fair’s Family Fun Center. There, they have the opportunity to spread their messages about child abuse prevention, Internet safety, and healthy families. The video features Missouri KidsFirst’s Cherisse Thibaut explaining why the fair is a great place to connect with the people they want to reach.
