Program aimed at preventing child abuse

SALEM — The Children’s Trust Fund, a state organization aimed at preventing child abuse, went to Wakefield this summer in the aftermath of a scandal involving a former day-care provider.

On Tuesday, the organization will run a program here called “Keeping Kids Safe,” which teaches parents how to identify and prevent child sexual abuse.

The free program is from 6 to 8 p.m. at the downtown YMCA on Sewall Street.

The meeting will cover how to pick a child-care provider; how to teach children to protect themselves and tell someone if they are touched inappropriately; and what to do if a child discloses abuse.

The program is sponsored by state Rep. John Keenan, Sen. Joan Lovely, the city of Salem and the YMCA.

For more information, contact Keenan’s office at 617-722-2263.
