Get Involved

Anything you do to support kids and parents can help reduce the stress that often leads to abuse and neglect.

What you can do:

  • Be a friend to a parent you know
  • Ask how their children are doing
  • Draw on your own experiences to provide reassurance and support.
  • If a parent seems to be struggling, offer to baby-sit or run errands, or just lend a friendly ear.
  • Show you understand.
  • Be a friend to a child you know.
  • Remember their names.
  • Smile when you talk with them.
  • Ask them about their day at school.
  • Send them a card in the mail. Show you care.
  • Talk to your neighbors about looking out for one another's children.
  • Encourage a supportive spirit among parents in your apartment building or on your block. Show that you are involved.
  • Give used clothing, furniture and toys for use by another family. This can help relieve the stress of financial burdens that parents sometimes take out on their kids
  • Volunteer your time and money to programs in your community that support children and families, like parent support groups or day care centers.
