Rainbow House Promotes Child Abuse Prevention

Janet Goodner Jackson and Sarah Gordon with Child Protective Services promoted the "Walk of Knowledge" that is hosted by multi agencies: Child Protective Services, Child Welfare Boards, Emergency Teen Shelter, Patsy's House, CASA, Child Placing Agencies and Rainbow House.

 This is not the typical walk. It's free to the community. This event provides a very visual reality of child abuse and neglect. It's a stroll on the courthouse lawn to see 704 pairs of children's shoes that represents the number of confirmed child abuse cases in Wichita County for 2014. The shoes are set out along the sidewalk with signs that provide information both on statistics and ways to prevent abuse.

There will also be the sale of child abuse prevention t-shirts on behalf of Rainbow House. It is $10 for a t-shirt, and each sale benefits the Rainbow House, providing much needed items and clothing for children in their care.
