La Voz Latina Central attended this beautiful event today that launched the 2018 PA Blue Ribbon Champions for Safe Kids Awards. This event brings attention to chid abuse and prevention efforts. “Every day, in every corner of this commonwealth, champions for kids step up and protect them from harm. We honor them today. These heroes report suspected abuse to ChildLine. They safely intervene to help a child in need of protection” said Angela M. Liddle, MPA, PFSA’s president and CEO. Thank you Family Support Alliance for all that you do for our children!
Thank you PSECU Assistant VP of Marketing and Communications and PFSA board member for your philosophy and commitment to help build communities in which children can safely grow and thrive.
According to the PA Dept. of Human Services, 46 children in the commonwealth died of child abuse-related causes in 2016 and there were 4,597 substantiated reports of child abuse, including 79 children who suffered near-fatal injuries.
