In place of our luncheon, we will release a video presentation on Thursday, April 2. Join us for opening remarks from Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott and ACH CEO Wayne Carson before the keynote address from TCU’s Daren Jones, LMSW. Serving an integral role in teaching Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) across the U.S. and throughout the world, Daren will speak on how trust transforms and heals kids from hard places. Join us—with the appropriate social distancing, of course!
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Lend A Hand will play an integral part in preparing for a community-wide campaign during the month of April. The goal is for every participant to make a commitment to address child abuse and neglect in Tarrant and the surrounding counties. We believe that attacking this issue on a grass-roots level will lead to greater success in getting the public engaged in an issue that truly affects everyone.
Committing to something as simple as starting a water cooler conversation at the office or hosting a conversation at home brings attention to the issue. In addition, our supporters can commit to learning more and taking action in areas, such as volunteering with participating organizations, becoming a foster or adoptive parent, sponsoring a mentor, or donating to support the work being done to eliminate child abuse and neglect in our communities.
Have a Heart and Lend a Hand to help us bring awareness to this important cause.
