An organization accustomed to helping abused and neglected kids after an incident has occurred is now trying to take measures to prevent it from happening in the first place. Kids’ Harbor was recently awarded just over $224,000 in tax credits.
That’s Kids’ Harbor Executive Director Cara Gerdiman. She says they’ll be speaking to schools, kids, parents, churches, and any other community organization that will listen to them. The programs will include information on how to keep kids from one-on-one situations with adults where abuse could potentially occur. They’ll also focus educational programs for parents to help them better understand symptoms, signs, and situations that could lead to abuse.
