In place of our luncheon, below is a video presentation with opening remarks from Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott and ACH CEO Wayne Carson. We are glad to present our keynote speaker 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 speaks on how trust transforms and heals kids from hard places. Tune in below.
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Lend A Hand plays 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.
