This past #Saturday was the anticipated #BacktoSchool event with Church Project. The event was a #hugesuccess!! Families were overwhelmed with all the things they received for their children. The church had #volunteers help the families carry the bags and walk with them to their cars.

Families received #freesupplies, #shoes, #uniforms, #schoolsupplies, #backpacks, #food, #books, #handsanitizer, #masks and even #snowcones and to-go food plates!

Thank you for all the CYS workers, volunteers and participants who came together to make our #backtoschool fair a huge success!

The Senior Justice Assessment Center (SJAC)— the first of its kind in Texas— serves the complex and unique needs of senior victims of abuse, neglect, and/or exploitation. SJAC collaborates with experts in geriatric medicine, social services, protective services, law enforcement, and civil and criminal prosecution, to provide services to seniors.

As the senior population grows and the frequency of elder abuse rises in Harris County, SJAC aims to ensure the dignity of seniors by increasing awareness, education, and prosecution of elder abuse. Services include assessments, multidisciplinary team meetings, case coordination, treatment referrals, education and research.

Significant projections suggests that the number of Americans who are 65 and older will increase from 43.1 million to 83.7 million by 2050. The number of Americans 65 and older is expected to almost double by the middle of the century when they will make up more than a fifth of the nation’s population. A similar trend is evident in Harris County. As the number of older adults increase, elder abuse and neglect has been identified as a serious and pervasive problem. Elder abuse has major consequences for victims including serious physical injuries, emotional pain and suffering, shame, depression, shattered trust, financial ruin and increased risk of mortality.

National Nurses Week is May 6th through 12th. Take this opportunity to thank a medical professional, especially nurses! Nurses are the front line in our battle against Covid and that is in addition to their regular duties of taking care of the sick and injured.

While other businesses were shutting down or limiting business hours during the pandemic, our Integrated Health Clinic expanded its hours to include Saturdays.

The Integrated Health Services Division provides essential medical, dental, psychiatric, behavioral health, and assessment services to children (ages 0 to 18) involved in the local child welfare system. All services are provided by a team of professionals working together, in one location, to treat the whole child.

Pinwheels are the national symbol for child abuse prevention and also a symbol of childhood joy and innocence. Pinwheels represent hope, joy, and the recognition that all children deserve a safe and healthy childhood. Harris County has the largest child population in the Texas, with over 1.2 million children.

Child Abuse is preventable. The best way to prevent child abuse and neglect is to support families and provide parents with the skills and resources they need.

For over half a century, Harris County Resources for Children and Adults has been providing services to strengthen families and to help thousands of children in our community. Our child abuse prevention programs and services provided in 14 school districts and at our 24-hour Youth Services Center help families in crisis and at-risk youth from getting involved in the CPS or juvenile justice systems.

This month and throughout the year, let’s all do our part to make Harris County a safer place for children to grow up.

Thank you Ginger Harper, Director of the Youth Services Division, for your tireless commitment to thousands of children and families in Harris County. For almost half of century (48.7 years), Ginger has dedicated her life to serving others. Ginger began her career with Harris County after graduating college. She started out as a secretary and probation officer with Harris County Juvenile Probation in 1972 and ends her career as the Director of the Youth Services Division of our organization.

“Ginger is a true servant leader who always put the needs of children and families first,” said Joel Levine, Executive Director of Harris County Resources for Children and Adults. “Ginger is a strong advocate for the agency and the staff. Ginger’s accomplishments were many and her impact will be felt for years to come. Ginger was a true role model in our field and I am proud to call her a mentor to myself and many others.”

The formation of the Youth Services Division, the Prevention CANS, the Parent/Teen Survival Program, the Safety-Net Program and expansion of the CYS Program and transformation of the Kinder Emergency Shelter model live on today and into the future.

Today, Ginger is embarking on her next adventure, that of retirement! We wish you the absolute best in your next chapter and thank you again for your service!
