NEW BRUNSWICK – Prevent Child Abuse-New Jersey will host its 10th Annual Strengthening Those Who Touch the Lives of Children Conference at the Imperia in Somerset on May 9. The yearly conference gathers together more than three hundred family support professionals working with New Jersey families to ensure that children are healthy and nurtured. The audience represents a workforce that directly educates more than four thousand parents of very young children.
The conference keynote will be delivered by Sharon Saffold, co-author of the new book Cake and Combat Boots, and a nationally recognized public speaker. Participants will enjoy a day of education skill-building sessions aimed at developing their capacity to support vulnerable families and strengthen their parenting skills. Topics explored will include “The Family Experience”, “Project P.R.I.D.E.”, and more.
Many conference attendees are home visitors who work statewide with new and expectant families to ensure that their families get off to a healthy start. Professionals attending the conference provide families with health care information, community referrals, parent education, birth control resources, and child development and education materials.
Corporate sponsors for the event include The Home Depot, Bed Bath & Beyond, LittleMissMatched, Longhorn Steakhouse, Red Robin, Stress Factory Comedy Club, L’Occitane en Provence, Brunswick Zone, Olive Garden, and iPlay America.
