Community Partners for Child Safety

Community Partners for Child Safety is a voluntary, free service to help parents and children. The main goal of Community Partners for Child Safety is to keep children safe from abuse and neglect and to provide support for the families. Parenting can be a struggle and at times assistance is needed. Community Partners for Child Safety can be that assistance through difficult times.
