Welfare Watch January 29, 2016 - Georgia Child Fatality Review

This week VOICES for Georgia's Children hosted a panel of state leaders that unveiled and discussed the release of Georgia Child Fatality Review Panel's Annual Report (calendar year 2014).  I hope you will take some time to review this report (linked here).  Though it is over 100 pages it contains much information that all that care for children should be familiar with.  Also, linked is the video produced by the GBI regarding safe sleep.  If you do nothing else with this message I hope you will pass along this video link to all you know.  In 2014 158 children in Georgia died by sleep-related causes.

Also linked here is the Georgia Office of Child Advocate Annual Report for calendar year 2014. As with the with the Child Fatality Review Panel Report this document contains many recommendations and reviews current initiatives underway to better protect Georgia's children and youth.
