Our Work in McKenzie

Where is the McKenzie Team in the process of reducing child abuse 90 percent by 2030?

In the first step of 90by30's Regional Team Roadmap to Prevention, team members collected 200 community surveys, asking McKenzie residents questions like "Do you think your neighborhood watches out for kids?" and "Do you think we can reduce child abuse in this community?" Their answers provided a foundation, a starting place and an important context.


The second step of the process saw the team looking carefully at the community's available resources and gaps in services. A diverse group of McKenzie residents came together to create a map of the current situation. With an eye toward filling those gaps and strengthening - not duplicating - current efforts, the team wrote its Child Abuse Prevention Plan. The plan is now being presented to stakeholders, and the first strategies, including Roots of Empathy, will be rolled out in 2018.
