Breakfast of Champions 2019

The Champions 2019 Breakfast of Champions was attended by an ever increasing number of community professionals!

We were so proud to have Stacie LeBlanc, JD, MA of New Orleans, LA give the keynote address. She focused on upstream solutions to abuse, solutions that prevent abuse from ever happening. LeBlanc is the 2020 President of APSAC (American Professional Society Abuse of Children) and is also Chair of the national No Hit Zone committee. In her address, she highlighted Champions’ work on the NHZ project as well as the Darkness to Light (D2L) prevention training efforts.  After two days of engaging community groups and training front-line professionals, she departed Hampton Roads and continues to connect with our organization from afar contributing to our projects and work.

The Child Advocacy Center of Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters was honored for its exemplary work in child abuse prevention. Its continuing work is an extremely valuable asset to our region and Commonwealth: Champions was honored to have center associates at the Breakfast podium as the 2020 Community Award recipient.
