National Child Abuse Prevention Month recognizes the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child abuse and neglect and promotes the social and emotional well-being of children and families. During the month of April and throughout the year, communities are encouraged to increase awareness and provide education and support to families to improve the well-being of children. CSH can help communities do just that through One Roof.
One Roof is the CSH initiative that helps policy makers and stakeholders understand and implement Keeping Families Together Supportive Housing, designed to ensure families in the child welfare system are safely and permanently unified or reunified and stabilized in their own homes with access to services that improve the lives of children and their parents. CSH is dedicated to bringing many sectors and systems together, especially housing, healthcare and child welfare, to significantly improve outcomes for vulnerable households and our children.
Keeping Families Together Supportive Housing empowers families in public and other rent-assisted housing by combining the stability of a home with intense case management and services based on the goals of the whole family, while strategically targeting and attending to each adult and child.
