Next week's Positivity Project theme is "Appreciation of beauty & excellence." This is the ability to identify and enjoy that which is admirable in the world. We notice and value the world's beauty and people's skills. This is even more evident in this time that we have spent away from others. #otherpeoplematter

Every child deserves to grow up in a supportive, stable and nurturing environment. Right now, the community must step in to keep eyes on children in your neighborhood, as many of the normal child protective factors are not in place during this crisis. If you have questions or concerns about a child’s safety, call the Child Protective Services’ 24-hour hotline at 703-324-7400. Fairfax County's CPS hotline workers can also provide families with help, guidance, and referrals to supportive services.
