The numbers of child abuse cases continue to climb in Douglas County, and not just in the population center around Roseburg.
So the organization taking the lead on child abuse prevention is working to recruit volunteers in the many rural corners of the county.
Up2UsNow is a coalition that brings several groups and agencies together, to turn the focus from responding to child abuse, to a focus on prevention.
Marion Kotowski is a violence prevention specialist with the Mercy Foundation; Pat Moore is a lieutenant with Roseburg Police.
They join us with an update on their efforts.
