GallatinAgenda_header.gif
Proclaimation





WHEREAS, Montana has over 220,000 children who count on us to protect them and help them grow into the healthy, happy, productive people they’re meant to be; and
WHEREAS, our children are our most valuable resources and will shape the future of the State of Montana and Gallatin County; and
WHEREAS, exposure to extreme and sustained stress such as child abuse and neglect, indifference and violence, can devastate a child’s development and have long-term psychological, emotional and physical effects with lifelong consequences for these vulnerable victims; and
WHEREAS, child abuse prevention is a community responsibility and finding solutions depends on involvement among all people; and
WHEREAS, effective child abuse prevention activities succeed because of meaningful connections and partnerships created between child welfare, education, health, community- and faith-based organizations, businesses and law enforcement agencies; and
WHEREAS, investing in strengthening families is investing in community and economic development because flourishing families are the foundation of a thriving society and children’s well-being; and
WHEREAS, preventing child abuse means stopping it before it starts.
“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” --Frederick Douglass
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOVLED that on April 3, 2018, the Gallatin County Commission does hereby proclaim in Gallatin County, Montana, the month of April 2018 to be: CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION MONTH
