Local Councils assist the State Board in three major areas: Reviewing grant proposals, facilitating collaboration and developing new programs, and promoting awareness of child abuse and how to prevent it. One of the main reasons for the establishment of Local Councils is that the State Board feels that child abuse is a community problem and must be solved at the community level. Members of the Local Councils are knowledgeable about the resources or lack of resources in a community and are in an excellent position to facilitate collaboration between agencies and to help develop new programs. The Local Council can serve as a forum for identifying gaps in services to the community and promoting solutions.

In addition, Local Councils can bring prevention to the forefront by helping to educate people about the difference between treatment and prevention. ...(Read More)
