We remain concerned for the many at-risk children who do not have the vigilant eyes of teachers, doctors, and counselors. We join our partners in a common mission to improve the lives of children and families at risk - the health professionals, social workers, firefighters, law enforcement officers and community providers who work so hard to ensure children’s safety.

The enemy COVID-19 continues to affect the quality of life for us all, some with inconvenience, some with stress and anxiety, and some with tragedy.

While it is clearly challenging to do our work within these restrictions, it is more important than ever to continue our collaborative efforts to protect children and other victims from abuse and family violence.

We at ICAN were "thinking" about protecting children from abuse, preventing family violence. We were focused on providing safety and support to families, and holding perpetrators accountable.

Thursday April 2, 2020

We at ICAN continue our mission, though much of our activity has moved to a virtual setting. I want to first thank our dedicated social workers, medical professionals and all first responders who continue to bravely serve our local communities. I also want to provide you with a brief update to share our latest schedule, venue and date changes for our upcoming ICAN related activities.
