ACS 'Kids Chat' opens new avenues of communication for children

Jill Nugin, manager, Family Advocacy Program, Fort Carson Army Community Service, directs children into their designated age groups during “Kids Chat,” a service provided by the Family Violence Prevention Plan working group, at the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division Headquarters building, Aug. 24, 2012. ACS’s FVPP is only a working group, but is currently in its final stages before being signed and becoming an official service provided by the FAP. Kids Chat was developed to attack the problem of domestic and family violence at Fort Carson, said Nugin. “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.
