ACS’s FVPP is currently a working group, and is the process of becoming an official service provided by the Family Advocacy Program. Kids Chat was developed to attack the problem of domestic and family violence at Fort Carson, said Jill Nugin, manager, FAP, Fort Carson ACS. “The family violence task force was developed a year ago because of a significant increase in infant deaths in El Paso County…the community as a whole put this working group together to address what we could do to reduce the impact of child abuse,” said Nugin.
