The Kosair Charities® Face It® Movement Shares Prevention and Intervention Resources
(Louisville, KY, January 9, 2017) – The Kosair Charities Face It Movement is celebrating the new year with the launch of its new and improved website. As a hub of child abuse prevention and intervention resources, the goal is to promote best practices, engage the community, and advocate for effective policies to improve the child welfare system. The layout of the new site equips parents and caregivers, community members, and professionals with easy to navigate resources that best fit their interests and needs.
In Kentucky, over 19,500 children experienced abuse or neglect in calendar year 2015. Everyone has a role in ensuring communities are safe places for children to grow and thrive. Members of the community can use the Face It site to learn the warning signs of abuse, tools to promote prevention, and ways to get involved.
The new Face It site allows parents and caregivers to search for tips and resources based on their child’s age and stage.
The professionals whose job it is to keep kids safe, including child care providers, educators, medical professionals, and youth program professionals, can find best practices and resources on the new Face It site.
“As the First Lady I have made a commitment to ensure children in Kentucky are safe from abuse and neglect,” said First Lady Glenna Bevin. “The Face It Movement’s newly launched website gets us closer to our goal as it provides helpful resources for parents, community members, and professionals to prevent, recognize, and respond to child abuse and neglect.”
Other features of the new site include an events calendar, partner information page, and a form to order free prevention brochures and posters. Also, a “Report It” button is visible throughout the site that provides information on reporting child abuse and neglect in Kentucky and all surrounding state.
About the Face It® Movement: The Face It Movement, conceived and created in 2012 as a response to the public outcry against the increasing number of child abuse deaths in the Commonwealth, and officially launched in April 2013 as an initiative led by Kosair Charities. Face It directly addresses the increasingly unacceptable number of child abuse deaths in Kentucky with the promotion of best practices in child abuse prevention and intervention, engaging the community, and advocating for effective policies to improve the child welfare system.
