Our Staff

Whether it’s training nurses to educate new parents on coping with crying babies, coordinating law enforcement investigators to learn how to interview children, or teaching child welfare professionals techniques to strengthen families and improve outcomes for infants and toddlers, our staff and contractors are all committed child advocates who are the best at what they do. Together, we focus on meeting community needs for strategies that keep children safe.
