    The actors dress in robes and some of the men have grown their beards in preparation for the evening, he said. There will be a live camel, sheep and donkey.

  • Report is a first step we need to continue

    There is nothing about the death or near death of a child, at the hands of their caretaker, which can be viewed positively. Despite this sad and stark reality, we at Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky are encouraged by the release of the second annual report from the Child Fatality and Near Fatality External Review Panel. This report reflects the work of a dedicated and voluntary multi-disciplinary group of professionals (including a PCAK representative). The Panel’s commitment to data driven, solution focused recommendations are readily apparent in this report.
