KY Multi-County Task Forces on Child Abuse, Inc.
"Proudly Serving the Commonwealth"

WHAT IS A TASK FORCE?

House Bill 486, which created the Child Victims' Trust Fund and the State Board for the Prevention of Child Abuse, considered a Task Force to be the proper organization for local communities to utilize in addressing the problem of missing, exploited and sexually abused children.  After all, the problem of abuse is a national tragedy with a community based solution.  The Task Forces can apply for funds from the Child Victims' Trust Fund on a matching basis.

WHAT IS THE ROLE OR FUNCTION OF A TASK FORCE?

A Task Force has two primary purposes, to assist in the coordination of existing investigative and support resources and to develop a clear understanding of the problem within the community.  The Task Force will be responsible for insuring that duplication of services is avoided by maintaining a clear understanding of the dynamics of community resources and programs dealing with the problem of sexually abused, exploited and missing children.  Another area of concern for the Task Force is to encourage interagency communication and cooperation so that better service can be provided for child victims and their families.

WHAT EXACTLY DOES THE KY MULTI-COUNTY TASK FORCES DO?

The primary purpose of the KY Multi-County Task Forces is to educate the general public about what child abuse is and thus heighten the awareness of abuse.  The KY Multi-County Task Forces is an educational organization.  The awareness of abuse is not limited to the awareness of sexual abuse alone.  The KY Multi-County Task Forces attempts to heighten the awareness of all types of child abuse and neglect, including sexual, physical, emotional, and the neglect of the basic essentials of food, clothing, shelter, education and supervision.  It is through this approach that the KY Multi-County Task Forces hopes to help prevent child abuse.  Subsequently, it further heightens the awareness of missing children.  The agency's mission programs, contingent upon available funding, are:  the production and distribution of child abuse public service announcements for newspapers, radio and television; the operation of an emergency hotline to assist callers with the reporting of child abuse, as well as appropriate community referral services; the distribution of child abuse literature; the distribution of posters of missing children; a speaker's bureau for school, civic and other community presentations; the sponsorship of a child abuse poster contest in Kentucky schools; and, financial assistance to emergency shelters for abused and neglected children.
