Preventing child maltreatment is more than a family matter.
The Alliance has endorsed the Jackie Walorski Maternal and Child Home Visiting Reauthorization Act of 2022. This legislation will reauthorize and double funding for the Maternal Infant Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program during the next five years. The U.S. House Ways and Means Committee unanimously voted 41–0 to advance this legislation on Sept. 21.
Start 2023 off right by taking the Alliance’s training of trainers – Bringing the Protective Factors Framework to Life in Your Work – virtually January 23–26. If you are interested in training, presenting and facilitating gatherings that build protective factors to strengthen families, then this 4-day virtual training is for you. There will be interactive information sharing, activities and networking with other qualified trainers. Spots are limited for the training and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
