Creating Resilient Communities

Creating resiliency in communities can be an effective way to prevent child abuse and neglect. Communities that are strong and resilient can provide a safety net for families and children, helping to prevent stressors and adverse experiences that can lead to abuse and neglect. Resiliency in communities can be promoted by building strong social networks and support systems, providing access to community resources and services, and promoting a culture of prevention and support for families. Additionally, promoting resiliency in communities can help to create a sense of social responsibility and collective action to prevent child abuse and promote healthy child development.
