Journey to Safety Tour
In order to share a behind-the-scenes journey to see the child protection system through the eyes of an abused or neglected child, the Child Protection Coalition collaborates with our member agencies to offer a bus tour several times a year specifically for community leaders – the Journey to Safety.
The Journey introduces travelers to the world of investigations, shelters, foster homes, treatment services and the courts.Through stories told by child welfare professionals and site visits, participants learn what it’s like to be a child in state custody.This close-up experience increases understanding and inspires community advocacy to improve the lives of abused and neglected children.
The 2017 Journey to Safety Tour will include:
Child Abuse Network
Laura Dester Children’s Center
Youth Services of Tulsa
Lunch and Panel Presentation
Parent Child Center of Tulsa
Family & Children’s Services
Domestic Violence Intervention Services
Special recognition to Leadership Tulsa for collaborating on the April 20 tour and to Tulsa Area United Way’s Women’s Leadership Council for collaborating on the April 27 tour.
Upcoming tours will be August 17 (this tour is full) and October 5 (slots remain).
