LEARN THE SIGNS - FOSTER CARE
Neglect is the #1 reason children are removed from their biological home, followed by parental drug use.
It is not always easy to recognize that a child is being hurt or is at risk, so abuse is often undetected. There are indicators (signs, symptoms or clues) that when found, either on their own or in various combinations, can point to possible abuse, neglect or violence in the home.
By learning the signs of neglect or abuse, lending a hand, listening, or reaching out for help, you may protect a child from further harm. Early intervention can help families stay together. It can take just one person to make a real difference.
