Northwestern SWAT fosters 'Wooden Child' prevention of child abuse
April 16, 2021
Members of the Northwestern Oklahoma State University Social Workers Association of Tomorrow (SWAT) have taken part in the "Wooden Children" project sponsored by the Garfield County Child Advocacy Center.
The Wooden Children project is designed to bring awareness to the number of child abuse cases that are investigated each year. In 2020, 248 confirmed cases of child abuse were reported in Garfield County.
The Garfield County Child Advocacy Council has conducted the Wooden Children Program annually for approximately the last 10 years. It was canceled last year due to the pandemic.
