Not One More Child

The Not One More Child Coalition was created in January of 2012 by El Paso County Commissioner Sallie Clark and 4th Judicial District Attorney Dan May with the goal of not seeing one more child in El Paso County die as a result of abuse or neglect. Representatives from more than 40 organizations in El Paso County are a part of the coalition.  The next big group meeting is May 12, 2014 at the Citizens Service Center (1675 W. Garden of the Gods Rd.) in the Assessor's Training Room, first floor from 9am -11:30am.  The public is invited to attend. To be added to the mailing list please email JenniferBrown@elpasoco.com or call 444-5533.
