Success Story

Elaine was using both drugs and alcohol by age 11. She was removed from her home because her mother was physically abusing her and was mentally ill. As an adult, Elaine too lost custody of her children. She could not break the multi-generational cycle of abuse alone.

Candlelight Vigil for Recent Child Deaths

Please join Partners with Families & Children, the Spokane Prevention Of Child Abuse and Neglect (SPO-CAN) Council and Our kids: Our business in a community candlelight vigil to honor the lives of the four children that were recently injured or died from the results of child abuse and neglect. On Wednesday September 28th at 6:00 pm we will gather in Riverfront Park at the Red Wagon. There will be brief presentations from several local agencies that will share specific ways community members can engage in the fight to end abuse and neglect. We as a community can have a profound impact for our kids when we work together to support all families and all children.
