Kentucky's regional children's advocacy centers provide life-saving services to more than 12,000 children and caregivers each year. Child abuse is the number one public health issue facing children, with a costly impact for victims as well as our society. This is why our specialized intervention services are so critical! Kentucky's children's advocacy centers not only lessen the impact of trauma to ensure the health and well-being of survivors and families but are also making ourcommunities safer for everyone.
House Bill 8 will ensure that $1.3 million in funding goes to critical services for children and families instead of the Kentucky retirement system, without impacting KERS. For more information, click here.
