Officials Focus on Fighting Child Abuse

When a 3-month-old infant was thrown to the floor by her father, scarring her for life, Will Constable’s organization stepped in. Constable, executive director of the local Court Appointed Special Advocate Association, sees his share of disturbing child abuse cases. He works with several others - from social workers to physicians - to protect children and get help for families. As child abuse continues to plague families throughout the area, those organizations are making a unified effort to combat the problem.
