Sue Gould, Executive Director of the Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse in Dutchess County, discusses her organization’s mission: to protect children, advocate on their behalf, and educate the community on how to prevent abuse. The Center partners with local schools, law enforcement agencies, and the Dutchess County Department of Social Services to achieve these goals. Ms. Gould describes how the organization addresses rehabilitation for parents from all economic and social levels who do not know how to care for their children, the various ways she and the Center share information with the public about this problem, and what to look for when identifying child abuse.
