Child Abuse Prevention Research
Organized by: Geoffrey Elmore
I am a single father of two who is currently employed by Kentucky CPS. I have a BSW in social work and I wish to return to school in order to seek a Ph.D. Research will be in the causes and most effective methods of reducing childhood abuse and neglect.
At this time I feel it is financially inconceivable for me to pursue a Ph.D. I am currently completing my Masters and feel that it would be advantageous to continue. The state of Kentucky leads the nation in fatalities of children under the age of 5 years old. This situation seems untenable and yet has persisted for the better part of the decade. I would like to gear my research towards solving this most horrible of problems as I feel the current system is failing families and children alike.
Any small donation you make can help fund my research goal and resolving this current state of families in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
