On April 13, 2020 Governor Gavin Newsom announced, during Child Abuse Prevention Month, $42 million in new investments to protect younger Californians who are at heightened risk for abuse and mistreatment due to COVID-19. “Every child deserves to grow up in a safe, stable and nurturing environment free from fear, abuse and neglect,” said Governor Newsom.  The Governor also stated that $3 million in funding be distributed to Family Resource Centers. “Family Resource Centers play a critical role in preventing child abuse and neglect, strengthening children and families, and connecting families to an array of county support systems of care. This funding will provide direct support and services to foster families, including material items, assistance with isolation needs, parenting resources, and staff time to help link families to other state and federal supports (e.g. food, housing, etc.).”
