In light of the recent tragedy of the death of a toddler there has been a lot of talk about prevention and what we, as a community, might be able to do in regards to prevention of child abuse and neglect. There is a statewide organization known as Prevent Child Abuse Indiana that has local chapters in many counties although Marshall County is one of the 23 counties that have never had a council. That is about to change!
Halley Kittrell, CASA Director for Marshall County will bring Mary Armstrong Smith, the Director of Prevent Child Abuse Indiana to Marshall County on Monday, October 5th. The informational meeting will be held in the Plymouth Public Library at 1:00 p.m.
Kittrell said, “We need your involvement and your networks! EVERYONE is invited to this meeting!” She continued, “It is during the day and I know many of you may be working, but this is an informational and planning meeting in which we will set a date for a community meeting, likely in the evening, so please don’t think you can’t be involved if you cannot make it to the first meeting!
