Training to help endangered children

Posted: Updated:

CARTERVILLE -- More than 100 people came together at a training session to help children whose lives have seriously been impacted by drugs.

They met at John A. Logan College Sunday afternoon. The Poshard Foundation sponsored the event while the National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children presented. The groups work to help children overcome challenges and break cycles of abuse and neglect.

"We hope to change the trajectory for the children that are being affected by the substance abuse activity by stressing collaboration," said Eric Nation, director of training and development for the National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children. "And focus on what's important and that's the children because they're 100% of the future."

Attendees included members of law enforcement, substance abuse treatment providers, health departments, child welfare, early childhood, and medical providers. 

This is the 11th year the Poshard foundation worked with Prevent Child Abuse Illinois to hold the event.
