IU Research September 8, 2022


The Strengthening Indiana Families project, led by researchers at the IU School of Social Work, collaborates with various state and local partners to combat child maltreatment in Indiana. The project has successfully established family resource centers in four counties, which have already served nearly 6,000 visitors. These centers provide community-specific support, resources, and events for local families, aiming to prevent child maltreatment and improve overall family well-being.
