FaceIt_Logo_vertFamily & Children’s Place is a partner in the Face It® Movement, a 10-year initiative led by Kosair Charities with the vision that all children in Jefferson County will be free from abuse and neglect by 2023. The movement began in 2012 in response to the public outcry against the increasing number of child abuse deaths in the Commonwealth, and launched in April 2013. It provides information and best practices in child abuse prevention, community engagement and promoting effective policies to improve the child welfare system.
