    Luke Shaefer, Ph.D 
- Director of Poverty Solutions at the University of Michigan - 
   About 15 million children in the United States – 21% of all children – live in families with incomes below the federal poverty threshold. Children from low-income families face increased risk factors in their educational life. Poverty affects student brain development, relationships with peers and the ability to complete a formal education. At this conference, Dr. Shaefer will address these topic areas and will work towards solutions to using the ACES approach.

CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION should be THE HALLMARK of any society that has compassion.
           Parents with strong parenting skills tend NOT to abuse.
          Parenting classes last a lifetime.

     Project Child's mission is education of children through our Learning to Care curriculum; educating parents with our Make Parenting a Pleasure class and our Parent Tree Support Group; providing child safety and parenting tips to the community; educating professionals who help children who have been abused; and much more.
