The social service workforce is critical to protecting children and preventing violence against children. Yet, in too many communities, a lack of funding has resulted in inadequate numbers of trained social service workers who can spot signs of abuse, treat children and prevent violence. On average, 1 out of 4 children has been a victim of some form of physical or sexual violence. Every five minutes a child dies as a result of violence. As individuals and communities, we can easily put a stop to this problem.
