Lee’s Summit CARES is joining forces with the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District to gather community input about youth safety and violence. Parents, guardians and child/youth caregivers are encouraged to take the survey, located at surveymonkey.com/r/LSCAdultSafety2019, by March 8.

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Survey results will help Lee’s Summit CARES assess youth violence and continue to improve safety and well-being for our community’s young people through programs and resources.

Participation in the survey is anonymous, and results will be reported only in the aggregate. Those taking the survey are encouraged to be open and honest.

Youth violence is a significant health problem that impacts thousands of young people each day as well as families, schools and communities, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

Lee’s Summit CARES is a community coalition dedicated to preventing youth substance use and violence, promoting exemplary character and empowering positive parenting. The organization includes representatives from a number of community organizations as well as a Youth Advisory Board. For more information, visit http://www.lscares.org/.
