Nurturing a congregation of professionals, working at the highest level, in order to promote the welfare and well-being of children; and to promote the professionals with whom the Institute works, who are the same professionals that surround the maltreated child, i.e., social workers, psychologists, doctors, nurses, judges, lawyers, educational advisors, etc.
