Children's Issues Committee
Co-Chairs- Sarah Merrigan, LICSW and Chelsey Helmke, LICSW
The Children’s Issues Committee’s goal is to identify the broader
causes of social problems within the local and state community, and to
actively work toward the elimination of these causes of dysfunction
through advocating change of the social service system itself.
Furthermore, we work collaboratively with other child advocacy groups to
address issues, as well as work with the SLAC committee to improve
social institutions, systems, legislation, and practice that impose
hardship on children and families.
