Governor Bentley's Children's Cabinet

 In April Governor Robert Bentley announced the formation of the Governor’s Children’s Cabinet by Executive Order.  Members of the Children’s Cabinet include our agency, the Department of Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention and the following agencies: Human Resources; Public Health; Early Childhood Education; Education; Mental Health; Rehabilitation Services – Early Intervention; Youth Services; Medicaid; and Minority Affairs.  State Representative David Faulkner is also serving on the cabinet and was elected Vice-Chair in June.

The Children’s Cabinet has met twice and is sharing information among the agencies to best serve the needs of children in Alabama.  Members are exploring other states that have children’s cabinets to help guide the work and reviewing best practices, such as developing a one-stop web site where people can receive information about all services and resources for children in the state.  The Alabama Children’s Cabinet will advocate for children in the areas of health care, education, nutrition programs and other needs.  As the work continues, watch for updates in future CTF newsletters.

Governor's Task Force on the Prevention of Sexual Abuse of Children

After the passage of Erin’s Law-ACT 2015-456 (HB 197) during the 2015 regular legislative session, a task force was created for the Prevention of Sexual Abuse of Children. The ongoing task force is continuing to meet on a regular basis. The task force encourages state agencies and non-profits to work closely to support the implementation of sexual abuse prevention programs in our schools. Members of the Task Force have been busy providing school systems with professional development opportunities, participating in panel discussions, and presenting to groups concerning the requirements of the law.  The Department has a resource page available on our website for more information concerning the work of the Task force and available resources.  The Task Force will continue to provide the needed support to others responsible for implementing the law.
