Empowered, healthy families in Stone & Taney Counties thriving in a positive and safe environment; free from abuse and neglect
Since 2014, Great Circle has received an annual grant award from the Children’s Trust Fund of Missouri for a community-based child abuse prevention program (CBCAP) serving Stone and Taney Counties. Growing Healthy Families (GHF) is the most comprehensive, collaboration project of Healthy Families Taskforce (HFT). HFT’s network of providers, board members, and community partners collaborate to fulfill the mission and vision of this program. GHF is a collaborative, community-based initiative that engages individuals, families, and communities by leveraging resources and community participation to strengthen families and foster positive, safe environments for children. Public and private agencies, businesses, faith-based organizations, schools, and other entities refer families to the program and provide services, collaboratively, to help reduce significant stressors that are major contributors to child abuse and neglect. The program is family-centered and prevention-focused utilizing a strength-based approach to assess and serve families.
