Children's Advocacy Center provides training in Southwest Denver with Launch Together
On Saturday, October 14th, Colorado child abuse and neglect public awareness campaign partner Denver Children's Advocacy Center (DCAC) conducted a training in Southwest Denver with Launch Together. Created through a unique collaboration of eight Colorado-based foundations, communities across the state are supported in enhancing existing prevention and health promotion practices and building coordinated community systems, Launch Together is designed to improve social, emotional, behavioral, physical and cognitive outcomes for young children (prenatal through age eight) and their families in Colorado.
Dr. Gizane Indart spoke about child sexual abuse with community members and other individuals, "it is estimated that 12,500 children 0 to 5 live in Southwest Denver. I am honored to be working with this community, having regular conversations with members, parents and grandparents about the emotional and social skills our young children should develop."
This training was part of a partnership that DCAC has with the Denver Early Childhood Council, Launch Together, and other community organizations. The vision of the Launch Together collaboration is that every child, family, and provider in Southwest Denver is emotionally and socially flourishing in relationships and environments that nurture their hearts, minds, and bodies. The mission of the initiative is to build a resilient, trauma-informed community network of parents, providers, and programs throughout Southwest Denver who are responsive to the social-emotional needs of young children, their families, and the champions who serve them.
