Annual Champion for Children Statewide Conference

Champion for Children will conduct the Annual Statewide Conference “It Starts With Us!” on March 23-24, 2018 at the Conference Center, Abilene Texas. The purpose for the Annual Conference is to go beyond treatment and therapy and reach the children and individuals before the abuse occurs. Evaluations have documented participant satisfaction in the previous conference workshops and featured speakers, and all regions of the state have been represented at each conference.

The conference will provide training to social workers, counselors, child protective services staff, day care workers, members of the legal, medical and law enforcement fields, schools, and others. Thirty workshops and three nationally recognized featured speakers will provide an enormous amount of knowledge, hands-on experiences, energy, and motivation to the participants of this conference.

Letter To Sponsors

Dear valued Champion for Children Sponsor

Thank you for your consideration as Sponsor for the Annual Statewide Champion for Children Conference “IT STARTS WITH US!

Champion for Children Conference is celebrating our 19th year! During this time of dramatic cuts to the federal budget, causing other conferences to shut down, travel and training budgets being reduced or cut completely, we are honored and grateful for the support of our partners and corporate sponsors and continue to seek and secure additional corporate sponsors and foundations, to allow us the opportunity to be non-reliant on federal government dollars for our ongoing success of training professionals who advocate for children. Champion for Children mission is to design a 2-day Conference to energize and mobilize people to put into action ideas that will improve the lives of abused children in our communities and to provide leadership on child abuse issues.

The Annual Statewide Champion for Children Conference March 23th and 24th 2018 will be held in Abilene Texas. Our Theme this year will be It Starts With Us!. The two-day interdisciplinary conference will explore key themes related to resiliency in children and their families. This will include a focus on: Concepts and theories of resiliency in children and families across cultures, interventions that help build resiliency in children and families, including prevention and treatment, research methods and findings from the study of resiliency across cultures and contexts. This conference will be of interest to law enforcement, clinicians, medical support nurses, family workers, social workers, therapists, educators, child advocates, youth workers, community workers and people form the voluntary sector. Attendees will be able to share their work and ideas regarding factors that are critical to the child and family health, well-being and resilience. The conference will provide a unique opportunity to discuss and integrate the latest work and ideas involving resiliency theory, research and practice. It will reflect a wider discourse that will include solution-focused and various therapy perspectives. Presenters will follow the themes: Resilience and Cultural Issues- the Young Child- Family Work – Mental Health/Well-Being, Vulnerable Children/Young People –Education – Post-modern Perspectives and Research Methodologies and Legal Case studies. Our Second Day will also include a focus on Infant and Toddler Resiliency and care.

Our previous conferences have educated 400+ attendees. With the addition of Saturday and collaboration with Region 14 Education Service Center, we hope to increase an additional 150 attendees. The conference also serves as the “kick-off” event for Child Abuse Prevention month which is recognized every year in April. The conference hosts a special luncheon in honor of Texas children and Child Abuse Prevention month. The Champion for Children conference and luncheon recognizes individuals and businesses that make a positive difference in our area. In 2005, the Champion for Children award was created to provide an opportunity for the community to come together and honor the often-unsung heroes who strive to help children overcome trauma and reclaim their lives. The award celebrates the life changing work of professionals in our community.

Champion for Children Conference is a grassroots organization of collaborative entities and does not have an independent 501 (c) (3). Mental Health America Abilene allows us to utilize their IRS non-profit status. We would like to thank you for considering our request to become a Champion for Children Sponsor.
