CPCM Programs & Development
Whether we’re training mandatory reporters, working to connect multidisciplinary team members with resources, or providing data analysis assistance to state agencies, we’re committed to stopping the cycle of child abuse.
Start you mandatory reporter training online here. Mandatory reporters are required by law to report child abuse, but anyone concerned about a child’s safety and welfare is encouraged to report abuse and/or neglect.
The vision of Resilient Communities: South Dakota is to provide coalitions with the tools, support, and statewide resources so that they are better able to know about, respond to and prevent child maltreatment in their communities.
The Data Initiative supports the development of a dashboard of available data sources for key indicators of children’s wellbeing and the publication of annual reports.
