About Our Work:

In late 2017, Scott County Child Protection Services and Scott County Public Health convened two community conversations to initiate a community-driven strategic plan to end child abuse and neglect. To expand on and drive this work, a multidisciplinary Steering Committee was established, and its Members are working to support a vision that ensures children are safe and thriving, and their families remain intact with the ability to access and use resources, supporting family stability and community connections now and in future generations.

 

We cannot do this alone. For this to succeed, we need ALL voices from our community involved: sharing expertise, experience, compassion, and unique perspectives. Community Advisors will:

  • Support community input and target impact
  • Leverage community skills and resources
  • Inform the direction of this bold work to end child maltreatment in Scott County

 

We look forward to building this movement with you. Please feel free to contact Heather Wilson at hwilson@co.scott.mn.us or call 952-496-8893 with any questions, and share this invitation with others!
