Through Her Eyes Girls Conference Friday, October 25, 2019 - MassMutual Center, Springfield, MA
At-risk and traumatized girls are a highly vulnerable population. Their world is getting more complex to navigate, and the stakes are unbelievably high.
CHD is committed to protecting the girls in our care, and in the care of professionals throughout the region. That is why we are convening the Through Her Eyes Girls Conference for the 15th year in a row.
Each year, the Through Her Eyes Girls Conference focuses on current methods and best practices for helping girls at home, in school, and in society face challenges from trauma, neglect, aggression, and addiction.
The conference features a keynote speaker, Nikki Bell, a lunchtime speaker, Peter Sylver, and breakout workshops run by notable professionals. The conference attracts over 500 professionals each year from throughout Western Massachusetts and Connecticut, including educators, care providers, and social workers. It also engages key educational institutions, agencies, and provider organizations in dialogue about how best to serve and support the front line staff in this critical work.
CHD’s Through Her Eyes Girls Conference contributes to the health and wellness of these vulnerable young people, by investing time, energy, and resources in educating the support network of providers that they will turn to in times of crisis.
Thank you for all you do to help improve the lives of at risk girls and young women in our community.
