Money raised from the Radiothon benefits the following Minnesota child abuse prevention efforts:
These initiatives consist of parents, community members and professionals who believe that prevention is key. Through parent support and community education, these initiatives help create a nurturing, safe community for children and families.
Families who get consistent community support early and often are much less likely to resort to abusive or neglectful parenting practices. For a variety of reasons, some families need more support than others.
Families in crisis benefit when they get relief from the stress of parenting, coupled with resources to help them get back on track. Families who suffer with violence in their relationships may require more intensive services that protect and restore safety to their homes.
These initiatives are very proud of the positive impact it has made in their respective counties. The Radiothon to End Child Abuse funds have allowed them to become more visible and promote awareness of child abuse on a much larger scale. Prevention works. By supporting family strengthening programs in your community; the results last a lifetime.
As organizations committed to bettering our community in the county in which we live, we are asking for your help to raise money to support this important mission. Listeners not only learn about child abuse and neglect - they also act! By making a pledge or bidding on a valuable Radiothon auction item, listeners can translate what they've learned into meaningful action to help end child abuse and neglect.
