Supporting abused, neglected kids


Employees at Clinton County Job and Family Services (JFS) wore blue Wednesday as the Clinton County commissioners recognize the month of April as “Child Abuse and Neglect Awareness Month.” The commissioners’ official proclamation states that the Child Protection Unit of Clinton County JFS supports troubled families through difficult times “through advocacy, education and professional services.” The proclamation asks the community to partner with advocates of children “and become aware that all Clinton County citizens can help prevent child abuse and neglect in our community.” Clinton County Commissioners President Kerry R. Steed thanked the JFS workers for their hard work. He said their impact on the community is “truly about the emotions and feelings” the employees bring to their work every day.
