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.
