Learn how to help keep kids safe

Keeping children safe from abuse and neglect is the main focus of The Division of Children and Family Services (DCFS), but the agency can’t do it alone—it relies on the support of the community to help keep children safe and families healthy.

To enable Heights residents to get to know DCFS—what it does, and how neighborhoods can work with the agency to help families—representatives will be in the Heights on Tuesday, Nov. 12, for an In Your Neighborhood event.

The Heights Suburban Collaborative is sponsoring the Nov. 12 event, which will take place at the Lee Road Library (2345 Lee Road), 5–7 p.m. Light refreshments will be served at this free event.

DCFS staff will present various topics, and be available to address specific cases and questions. Representatives from The Fatherhood Initiative will talk about safe sleep for babies.

Eligible families who register can receive a free pack-n-play for infants, and other resources. Call 216-325-9132 to register for a pack-n-play, or for additional information.
