Abril es el mes de prevención del abuso infantil

El Mes de la Prevención del Maltrato Infantil se reconoce en Estados Unidos desde 1983. Este vídeo explica los distintos tipos de maltrato infantil y lo que puede hacer para prevenirlo en su hogar. Una forma de prevenir el maltrato infantil es crear un entorno familiar de apoyo. Puede ver vídeos y folletos sobre cómo resolver conflictos familiares, controlar el estrés y enojo y establecer límites con los jóvenes en la página Información Para Padres. ¿Quiere saber más?

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month

Since 1983, the United States has recognized April as a time to raise awareness to prevent child abuse. This year’s theme is “Building A Hopeful Future, Together,” which emphasizes the need to establish nurturing and supportive environments for children and families. To accomplish this, we must recognize the potential risk and protective factors of child abuse and neglect. Read about them here on the CDC’s webpage for Violence Prevention. One proven protective factor is when families feel connected to a supportive community. Don’t forget to visit the UC Resource Center’s Violence Child Welfare Page for providers to review the signs and symptoms of child abuse and neglect, the safety plan for preventing child abuse, and other useful resources on this topic.

The Unaccompanied Children Resource Center (UCRC) is an online hub that provides information and resources to unaccompanied children, their families, and the providers who serve them. We provide educational content to equip unaccompanied children and their families with the knowledge they need to thrive in their new communities. The UC Resource Center also seeks to build the capacity of communities to better meet the needs of unaccompanied children through outreach, education, training, and live and self-paced e-learning opportunities.

The UC Resource Center is a project of the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI). To learn more about USCRI and its programs, visit refugees.org.

USCRI’s Rinconcito del Sol, “a little corner of sunshine,” located in Florida, is a shelter for unaccompanied girls between the ages of 13-17. This is a place where children can recover, get stronger, and become more prepared for the journey that lies ahead for them.
USCRI completes home study assessments and provides follow-up case management services to unaccompanied children and their sponsors. Case managers connect families with educational, legal, medical, mental health, and other community resources that families may need.
Livelihoods provides training and employment opportunities to youth who have been repatriated from the United States back to El Salvador, giving them the tools to reintegrate in the community and re-establish their lives.
USCRI administers the Trafficking Victim Assistance Program (TVAP) for the US Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office on Trafficking in Persons (OTIP), contracting with a network of over 200 providers across the US and US territories who provide direct services to survivors of trafficking.
