2013: Time to share our favorites!

It’s a new year! As we plan for 2013 here on BuildingBlocks, we thought it was the perfect time to share a little love and highlight some of the other blogs WE follow. Know another great blog we should add to our “favorites” list? Don’t forget to suggest it in the comments section below!

  • The National CASA Blog: Written by National CASA CEO Michael Piraino, this blog provides fantastic news and insight into the national child welfare system, foster care and child advocacy issues. You might recognize some of his posts from Huffington Post, where he has a regular column covering foster care. (Check out his most recent piece here.)
  • Changing the Way We Think About Prevention: A weekly blog from Prevent Child Abuse America, where our favorite posts are often written in response to national events. In the past year this has included everything from the Jerry Sandusky trial to the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary. A helpful national perspective, often with resources from organizations such as the Child Welfare League of America and the National Movement for America’s Children.
  • Darkness to Light Blog: SCAN partners with Darkness to Light to bring the Stewards of Children child sexual abuse prevention trainings to communities here in Northern Virginia. Their blog is a fantastic source of commentary on child sexual abuse issues across the nation, as well as success stories from other local  affiliates. (They’ve even posted some of SCAN’s very own D2L-related blog posts in the past year! Check them out here and here.)
