NEWS: SCAN to Host Dialogue with Faith Groups & Human Services

May 1, 2015

SCANFaithSummit_FlyerAOn June 5, 2015, SCAN and its Allies in Prevention Coalition will host Mobilizing Connections to Strengthen Families: A Dialogue Between FAITH COMMUNITIES and HUMAN SERVICES. From 8:00 – 11:00 am, participants will gather at Unitarian Universalists Church in Arlington for discussion, sharing and connection-building to address the issues surrounding child abuse and family violence. The planning committee hopes to:

  1. Create awareness and learn about family stress, child abuse, and positive parenting.
  2. Spark continuing dialogue between faith communities and human services regarding family issues.
  3. Ensure participants have access to tangible strategies and resources that can be used in their own community or workplace to promote healthy families.
  4. Support continuing efforts of newly formed relationships that will work together to engage in activities to build connections for families.
