Imagine a future in which family strengthening programs are so effective that the number of children impacted by abuse or neglect is one-third of the 674,000 children annually victimized today; a future in which every parent experiencing addiction can access needed treatment; a future in which dramatically fewer children are removed from their parents; and a future in which children can be cared for by a grandparent, aunt, or uncle when home is unsafe.
