Tell Us How We’re Doing!

The Center will be attending the 2016 Child Protection Summit next week, September 7-9th. While we are there, we will have a booth set up where you can stop by, meet some of our staff, and learn more about us. We will also have our video staff on site to record a few workshops, which will be available on our website in the weeks following the Summit.

We hope to see you there!
