Together We are Safer-Youth Safety during COVID-19

Submitted by Trevor Storrs of the Alaska Children’s Trust Resilience Factor Videos:

“We know this pandemic is having a big impact on Alaska’s children. Families are facing unprecedented stress levels and with no school, child care, after school programs and sports, some of our most reliable reporters of child abuse are no longer in contact with children. 

In partnership with OCS and the Child Welfare Academy, we have created a series of PSA’s encouraging caregivers to ask for help, prioritize their wellbeing and for youth to report and advocate when they know someone is in a high risk situation including themselves. Below are links to the PSA’s. You will likely see them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram too. We would appreciate you sharing on your own social media platforms and newsletters. 

Thanks so much for sharing this important message! Together we can keep children safe!”
