Attention Lake County parents! We are working with a statewide team to create a strategic framework for the prevention of child abuse and neglect in Indiana. The goal of this framework is to increase the effectiveness, alignment, and coordination of existing child abuse prevention efforts. We also hope to identify new opportunities to support the resilience and wellbeing of children and families to decrease the incidence of child maltreatment in Indiana.
So far, we have received 132 parent surveys from Lake County. Our goal is to have 382 parent surveys for a representative sample. We are only 26% of the way there to reach our goal and need your help. In addition, we want to ensure we have a broad sample of parents completing the survey and need to reach more low-income families in your targeted effort.

If you are interested and willing to participate, the survey can be found here:
