PA: Lawmakers, enforcement officials ask for $9 million more to help prevent child abuse
Penn Live – May 30, 2017
In their push, officials are calling for the establishment of a competitive grant program that would benefit Pennsylvania’s four home-visiting programs: Nurse-Family Partnership, Parents as Teachers, Healthy Families America and Early Head Start. These programs, officials said, show evidence of effectively preventing child abuse and neglect, and ensuring at-risk children have access to education, healthcare, safety and more.
