Positive Spin enjoyed a 93 percent success rate last year alone.
Keeping Kids Safe
Positive Spin is actively engaged with the Children’s Board of Hillsborough County and other participating community agencies in the Keeping Kids Safe Partnership to fight child abuse. With the support of agencies such as Positive Spin, the Keeping Kids Safe Partnership promotes public awareness about the many factors contributing to child abuse. The Keeping Kids Safe Partnership initiated the Child Abuse America’s “Winds of Change” Campaign designed to shift the focus from the problem of child abuse to the solutions created by effective supportive resources for parents.
