About This Event
To positively impact and serve the children and youth of our state, we must understand the issues and needs they face. Being familiar with the most recent data and research on child well-being helps leaders, policymakers, youth workers and advocates create positive change for youth.
Join us for State of the Child 2019 to learn about the top challenges for kids in Union County, and across Indiana, and what we can do to ensure all kids thrive. You will hear critical data from the 2019 Indiana KIDS COUNT® Data Book, as well as best practice research on successful approaches to key issues.
Through a robust and data-driven presentation, you will be empowered with the information needed to inform policies, practices and decision-making that improve the health and well-being of Hoosier youth.
