Child and family-serving professionals, advocates and leaders work tirelessly to prevent child abuse and neglect while building resilient families and thriving communities. Their contributions give us hope – hope for a better future for our children, our families, our communities and our state. To support these everyday heroes, Children’s Trust hosts its biennial prevention conference, which will focus on building educational, healthcare and family resources and community systems that support family well-being.

With the theme of Resilient Families and Thriving Communities, conference attendees will be inspired by dozens of dynamic breakout sessions, regional and national experts, and networking opportunities with peers from across the state.

Registration and session information will be coming in the spring.
