A Voice For The VoicelessWe are eight days into Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Laurie serves fervently as a GAL for numerous children suffering abuse and neglect, while also adamantly serving the parents of children who need a knowledgeable, dedicated attorney to fight for their rights to their precious children. Laurie's undoubted skill, artistic way with words, and passion for people seem to lay peace on some shockingly traumatic situations and tenacious times in the courtroom. In a time when it is easy to be rushed or disconnected, Laurie never loses site of the importance of bringing kindness and compassion wherever she is. Having Laurie as the GAL (child's attorney) on a case of abuse means knowing, without shadow of a doubt, that the child has patient, caring, and thoughtful representation for all of their varying needs that Laurie names priority. We thank Laurie for taking a stand with CASA advocates, a strong DHR, other knowledgeable attorneys, a passionate Judge, and other child advocates to say, "Child abuse ends with me!" ...

Everyday life has been turned upside down. But for a child who has experienced abuse or neglect, this may be just another season of turmoil—because of isolation, lack of social connections and potentially, poor mental and emotional health. If you suspect abuse or neglect, call the ChildHelp National Child Abuse hotline: 1-800-422-4453 www.childhelp.org/ #eyesonkids #COVID-19 ... See MoreSee Less

It's who we serve and it's a serious concern. Phone calls and Tele health don't give you the whole picture. I have asked staff to be hypervigilant. Not answering calls, not wanting to make visual contact, get your butt to the house and see them thru a window or talk to them in their yard. Bring coffee, candy, make them a mask , whatever just please see them. That is possible while remaining 6 ft apart and wearing a mask. We are already seeing the start of an uptick in calls from the counties. And now no at school attendance the rest or the year. God bless the true social worker who gets this-because many don't and that does not bode well for our future.
