April may be Child Abuse Prevention Month, but Children’s Trust of South Carolina focuses year round on the prevention of child abuse and neglect, and 3C is excited to support their work.
The statewide organization is adopting IMPACT, 3C’s groundbreaking data collection and reporting platform, to support implementation of two of its affiliate programs: Triple P (Positive Parenting Program) and the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Visiting Program (MIECHV).
Triple P offers parents practical strategies for managing their children’s behavior, while MIECHV trains home visit specialists to provide at-risk expectant parents with support, information, and, if needed, coaching regarding childcare and development.
Children’s Trust will also be using IMPACT to improve the quality of the workforce training it provides to organizations and agencies that work with children and families.
In addition to collaborating with state and local partner organizations and programs, Children’s Trust advocates for policies at the legislative level that will improve the lives of children and conducts research and evaluation to better understand and address the factors underlying child abuse and neglect.
Since 3C’s inception nearly two decades ago, we have been focused on improving the health and well being of children and families, so we are especially proud to provide implementation services to an organization similarly dedicated to positive life outcomes for children.
