Prevent Child Abuse NC CEO to speak at Butterfly House event

Sunday, April 18, 2010 — In observance of Child Abuse and Prevention Month, the Butterfly House Child Advocacy Center will host the fourth annual Child Abuse and Awareness Breakfast on April 28 in Stanly Regional’s Family & Education Center.

Rosemarie “Rosie” Allen, president and CEO of Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina, will be the speaker.  Continental breakfast will begin at 8 a.m., with the program starting at 8:30 a.m.

Allen is a native North Carolinian and has 30 years of experience advocating for the well-being of children and families. A former teacher, Allen has served as chief executive of several children’s organizations, including Partnership for Children of Cumberland County, Communities in Schools of Wake County, Smart Start Rowan and Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina. 

She is recognized for her leadership role in getting North Carolina’s local Smart Start movement off the ground and has been distinguished with a certificate in Early Education Leadership from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and as a graduate of Leadership North Carolina.

In June 2009, she was awarded “The Old North State Award,” a high honor for her service to children and families in North Carolina.

“We are thrilled to have Rosie Allen speak to our community about the prevention of child abuse,” said Amy Yow, manager of Stanly Regional’s Butterfly House Child Advocacy Center.

“The need for child advocacy centers is tremendous as last year the Butterfly House provided services for 179 new cases, which is a huge increase from the first full year serving 98 families.”

This event is sponsored by The Butterfly House, Stanly County Department of Social Services, Stanly County Partners in Health and other community agencies.

Seating is limited for this event. To reserve a spot, call (704) 984-4625.

The Butterfly House is a Child Advocacy Center on the Stanly Regional campus that provides evaluation and supportive services for possible victims of child maltreatment, which includes reported sexual and physical abuse and neglect.
