Building Community Commitment for Safe, Stable, Nurturing Relationships and Environments
Safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments are among the most powerful, protective and healing forces in a child's life. This publication presents nine key elements for engaging communities, so homes, schools and neighborhood spaces help promote children's healthy development. Case examples illustrate the elements, which are organized in three clusters: Develop a Shared Vision, Raise Awareness, and Partner with Others.
Prevention Institute developed "Building Community Commitment for Safe, Stable, Nurturing Relationships and Environments" for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as a supplement to the Essentials for Childhood framework for preventing child abuse and neglect.
