Local leaders hold luncheon to find solutions for child abuse, neglect in Bexar County
SAN ANTONIO - Several local leaders, including Mayor Ron Nirenberg, are working together to end child abuse and neglect in Bexar County.
A luncheon Monday afternoon at Luby's in downtown San Antonio was intended for all the partners who are trying to end child abuse.
The president of Child Safe Kim Abernethy said everyone has a part in solving these cases.
"We could not do our work without our partners," Abernethy said. "It's critical and visa versa, we all need each other to do our job. Any change we can thank them for this opportunity. This gives us that opportunity."
The Texas family code requires all of our agencies have working protocols to guide the workers at Child Safe.
