Groups that benefit from the conference include: social workers, counselors, educators, child care and youth workers, law enforcement personnel, medical and legal professionals, foster parents, child welfare board volunteers, elected officials, and other interested child advocates. “Together we can make a difference in the life of a child” Lori Bunton Champion for Children Chair lori@regionalcrime.org 325-677-7895
