Synopsis: In 1990, the US Advisory Board declared a national emergency in the child protection system. The Board argued that a universal system of family support, grounded in the creation of caring communities, was needed to ensure children’s safety. Strong Communities is the first initiative to conduct and evaluate a comprehensive, large-scale implementation of the Board’s proposed strategy. Strong Communities builds systems of support for families of young child through community- wide prevention and intervention.
