USD Center for the Prevention of Child Maltreatment Receives Updates on Progress and New Website
CPCM launched its public website, www.sdcpcm.com, on August 1, 2017. The website contains information about the work of Jolene’s Law Task Force, the creation of CPCM and the goals and objectives contained in the CPCM’s 10-Year Work Plan. The website also provides links to state and national resources, including a statewide database that allows people to search for counseling services in their area. The database was developed in partnership with The Helpline, based out of Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
“We are excited to offer the CPCM website as a tool for both professionals and community members. South Dakotans are ready for more information on how to end child sexual abuse and maltreatment; they are ready for change. The efforts of Advisory Board, including the publication of the website, demonstrate the statewide commitment to help South Dakota children facing traumatic experiences,” said Carrie Sanderson, director of CPCM.
Board members include representatives from the Department of Health, the Department of Social Services, the Department of Education, the Board of Regents, the University of South Dakota, South Dakota State University, child advocacy groups, law enforcement, community advocates, and a survivor of child sexual abuse. Minutes from the advisory board meeting will be published on the website, once approved.
Visit the website and join CPCM’s mailing list to stay up-to-date on the CPCM’s continued progress.
