A Message from Melody Easton, Executive Director, First 5 Nevada County:

Hello Community Members,
As part of our ongoing child abuse prevention planning efforts, we are conducting a short survey to find out more about the community's perception of existing prevention services and our readiness as a county to prioritize child abuse prevention. The survey should take you about 10 minutes and can be completely anonymous if you choose not to disclose your name and organizational information. The survey will remain open until October 1, 2021 and results will be shared during the next Community Support Network meeting on October 6th, 2021.
