"Imagine the state is our house." Poverty. Home Visitation. Prevention. Texas. And Prevent Child Abuse America in the news.

Doctor Christopher S. Greeley, Chairman of the Prevent Child Abuse America board of directors, had the opportunity to talk poverty, prevention, and solutions in the state of Texas this week at the San Antonio Express News - here. Please let us know what you think about Dr. Greeley's comments and whether you think you can use this information in your home states and communities. Please also take a look at the below excerpt and consider sharing this link with your friends, family, and co-workers. Thanks.

"Imagine the state is our house. We continue to spend our resources on cleaning up the leaks caused by our rusty pipes and not on maintaining the pipes before they break. While we clean up the mess, we complain that we really should do something about the rusty pipes. It's time we actually did the work of repairing the rusty pipes and begin to emphasize primary child abuse prevention."
