Pillar Five: Sustainable Funds for Prevention

07 Jan 2019 10:32 AM | Catherine Townsend (Administrator)

An often-overlooked tenet of the Six Pillars for Prevention is developing adequate and sustainable funding for prevention. Without funding, most efforts to advocate for the healthy development of children, strengthen youth serving organizations in the development of standards and policy or end the demand for children as sexual commodities are for naught. Developing sustainable funding is an important precursor to a viable program to prevent child sexual abuse.

 

In January and February, the Prevention Coalition is exploring this subject on social media. This campaign is being sponsored by Committee for Children. This organization is a leader in developing federal and state funding for the prevention of child sexual abuse. Many thanks to Melina Rozzisi and Jordan Posamentier of Committee for Children for their content and guidance, and to Nicole Epps and Zoe Persson of World Childhood Foundation for their work developing tweets around this subject.

 

Committee for Children is inviting Prevention Coalition members to a Congressional Briefing being held in Washington, DC on January 29th.
