All About Us

Madison County
Prevent Child Abuse Council
A Family Resource Link
C.R.I.S.P., Community Resources in Service to People, welcomes you to join us in our goal of helping families by supporting the five Strengthening Families Concepts.

Protective Factors Framework

The five protective factors at the foundation of Strengthening Families are characteristics that have been shown to make positive outcomes more likely for young children and their families, and to reduce the likelihood of child abuse and neglect. Learn more about the research-based Protective Factors Framework below.

  • PowerPoint Slides About the Protective Factors - Please use these slides in your own presentations about Strengthening Families, to describe each of the protective factors and the everyday actions that help families to build them.
