A Sheriff And A Doctor Team Up To Map Childhood Trauma




This is a wonderful article on two women who looked at and found areas of need in our county and did something about it. By finding that both the rates of child abuse, poverty and crime were concentrated in one area with no resources, they set about to change that. Through them came the initiative for the SWAG (Southwest Advocacy Group) Family Resource Center, along with help from many other people and groups. Now run by an independent board, it is a grassroots organization whose goal is to address the needs of the community by connecting individuals and families to services and resources through advocacy and from agency and community partners. Thank you to Dr. Nancy Hardt and Sheriff Sadie Darnell for working to make our county a better place for children and families. Please read and listen.  Read more about SWAG here.
