Crime Stoppers in Action – April
OUR IMPACT IN APRIL 2015
Your support and engagement continues to be the driving force behind the impact Crime Stoppers of Houston makes each month. The work we do is for YOU, your kids, your families… our neighbors. THANK YOU!
April was a busy month full of community events that support our mission. We focused many of our efforts on Child Abuse Prevention Month, educating on important child abuse facts, signs of abuse and ways to report abuse, as well as highlighted child abuse felony fugitives.
To kick-off the month, we visited with Michael Bybee of Comcast Newsmakers to talk about crime prevention in Houston, followed by informational meetings with Congressman John Culberson and City Council Members Mike Laster, Brenda Stardig, Ellen Cohen and Michael Kubosh. On April 7th, we led a discussion on safety concerns and safety tips were shared with women in the Women Helping Women 2 Network Houston Public, Galleria and Upper Kirby Chapters.
In addition to 23 Safe School presentations, we visited with Galena Park ISD’s School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) and shared important statistics and safety tips about Child Abuse. We also participated in the National Crime Victims Week fair (AVDA), attended the Barrio Dogs’ 5th Anniversary Celebration where we distributed information on animal cruelty prevention and co-sponsored the screening of the documentary, Evolution of a Criminal screening.
We look forward to sharing where we’ve been in May!
