Our free DocuPaks help families keep vital information about their children in one convenient place in case of emergencies. We send Docupaks to families upon request, limited to one per child in the household. Please visit our Contact page to order Docupaks for your family. Be sure to fill out your contact info accurately: name, address, and email or telephone number. We will be in touch with you to confirm before we ship.
Our free Prevention Print-Outs are quick guides that are full of easy-to-read tips for families about a variety of topics from Bullying, Parental Abduction, and School Year Safety. You may need to download the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to view and print them.
In May 2016, Child Find received a grant from the American Legion’s Child Welfare Foundation to produce and distribute to Head Starts nationwide the In Safe Hands tool kit. The project was completed in September of 2017.
Head Start collaboration offices in all 50 states received a supply of kits – free of charge – to distribute to local Head Starts and Early Head Starts at annual conferences, meetings, and trainings. The response to the kit was tremendous, with dozens of Head Start offices requesting additional kits – as well as trainings on its application and delivery in the field of early childhood education.
In Safe Hands Project Goals:
- Educate and inform parents and professionals about the negative impact of family conflict on a child’s learning and emotional health
- Provide support and prevention resources to early childhood educators and the families they serve
- Prevent conflict from leading to parental child abduction.
