      SOAR stands for – Strengths in Overcoming Adversity thru Resiliency!A Call for Action
      If you suspect that a child could be in danger but do nothing about it, it’s on you. If you support local or state leaders who don’t consider abuse prevention a priority, with the funding to back it up, it’s on you. If we as a community don’t wage war on domestic violence, opioid addiction, poverty, lack of education, lack of alcohol treatment and lack of mental health services, guess what: It’s on us and it’s time to SOAR! SOAR stands for –
      Strengths in Overcoming Adversity thru Resiliency!
