Supporting Happy Childhoods2020-10-05T23:53:32+00:00


Supporting happy childhoods for all children in West Virginia requires all of us to work together to create strong communities – made up of strong families where children can thrive. 

As shown in this video, when we build Circles of Caring around children, we help them succeed and help our communities grow stronger. This video features everyday actions that individuals, groups and communities can take to build protective factors that prevent child abuse and neglect.

Circles of Caring is based on research by the Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP) through their Strengthening Families Protective Factors Framework.
