A Community Approach to Preventing Child Abuse and Neglect
The Not One More Child coalition was created in January of 2012 by El Paso County Commissioner Sallie Clark and 4th Judicial District Attorney Dan May with the goal of not seeing one more child in El Paso County die as a result of abuse or neglect. Representatives from more than 40 organizations in El Paso County are a part of the coalition focused on child abuse and neglect prevention. Collaborative efforts since the founding of the coalition have resulted in a significant decrease in abusive head trauma and fatalities due to abuse and neglect.
Next Coalition Meeting
The next meeting will be held 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. in May, on a date yet to be determined, at the Citizens Service Center (1675 W. Garden of the Gods Road) in the 1st floor Assessors Training Room. The public is invited to attend. To be added to the mailing list please email KristinaIodice@elpasoco.com or call (719) 444-5533.
