October 29 meeting

Brad Gowins, Licensed Social Worker with Wayne County Children Services on Burbank Road in Wooster, brought attention to club members of the agency's requested .2 mill renewal levy appearing on our county's November 5 election ballot. 
Mindful of the mission statement of Wayne County Children Services, in partnership with the community, exists to protect abused and neglected children and to strengthen, preserve and empower families, Gowins shared statistics concerning the agency's funding sources, child abuse/neglect investigations, moneys expended for home placements, as well as protective and visitation guidelines. The speaker highlighted that Wayne County Children Services offers hope to children in the time of their greatest need, makes it possible to provide safety, permanency and well being to Wayne County children and their families.
