Strengthening Families Summit 2013

Concord, NH, March 18, 2013 - Nearly 200 child and family service providers and parent leaders participated in the second annual Strengthening Families Summit: Moving from Theory to Practice on March 18, 2013.  Representatives from New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine and Massachusetts,  in the fields of education, early childhood, family support, physical, mental and behavioral health, child protection, law, and criminal justice, faith institutions and statewide resource and information centers gathered to celebrate our accomplishments, build new skills, and plan for broader and deeper implementation.  

Heroes come in many forms- the firefighter who rescues a family from their burning house, the soldier who protects our freedom, the officer who puts his life on the line every day and  the summit attendees.  They may not get the same publicity or recognition but we know that they are true heroes.  They treat children and families with respect, compassion, and understanding; They elicit trust, confidence and a sense of community; they share their knowledge and skills; and they share themselves.  They make a difference in the lives of children and families everyday.  Together we are moving forward, strengthening families and keeping children safe.
