We are dedicated to educating ALL adults to

From Our Chief Executive Officer,
“We can only help the children we can reach. That means we need all hands on deck for this. We need every adult to understand their responsibility as a mandated reporter. We need every adult to understand if they have a concern for a child, that they are to make a report with DCYF, KNOW & TELL.”
