ALBANY, Ga. — In the long run, it costs less to prevent child abuse than it does to investigate it.
In light of that, state and area officials have teamed up to launch the “Stewards of Children” initiative to combat the problem.
The initiative, led by the Georgia Center for Child Advocacy, is aimed at training adults in protective measures. As of November 2009, nearly 300 facilitators have trained close to 11,000 people through the program.
