What about the children? And what about child protective service workers?

CHILD USA is heping to distibute PPE to Child Protective Service Workers during COVID-19

Thank You Ford!

CHILD USA partners with Ford during the Pandemic to aid front-line child protective service workers who are putting their lives on the line to prevent child abuse and neglect!

CHILD USA applauds the Governors of every state mandating families stay at home at this time. This is an absolute necessity. We also thank the front line healthcare providers risking their lives for all of us to get through this horrific pandemic.

Sadly, it is also a dangerous time when children are not seeing mandated reporters like teachers, doctors, dentists, and even police, as I discuss here. Now, more than ever, the children in homes with severe likely abuse and neglect need state child protective services workers to continue at-home visits. They are essential!

The problem is that these workers have not been receiving personal protective equipment, or PPEs. CHILD USA is doing everything it can to assist in making sure that home visits can continue safely for all involved. There are offices where 5 workers are sharing 2 masks, and some child protective service workers have died from COVID-19 already.

The good news is that Ford Motor Corp. is providing face shields to CHILD USA to distribute to front line child protective service workers who are putting their lives on the line to prevent child abuse and neglect.

Thank you Ford!

There are so many unsung heroes in this difficult time, and CHILD USA salutes the child protective service workers who have bravely continued to conduct home visits in cases of severe abuse or neglect of a child.  We hope that the face shields we receive from Ford will provide a meaningful measure of protection.

If you are a home-visiting front line worker for your state’s child protective services, and you would like a face shield, please contact CHILD USA at info@childusa.org.
