CSN Coordinator, Paula Roediger, has invited Child Protection Services Director, Nick Ready, to present statistics and services covered by CPS.

Roediger explains that child neglect is the simple absence of an adult in the child’s life.

The other eighteen percent of maltreatment is a combination of physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, and psychological abuse.
The Community Support Network meeting is April 2 at the Madelyn Helling Library Gene Albaugh Community Room from 3:30 PM to 5 PM.
