Safe Kids Virginia

Keeping kids safe, on the road, at home and at play 

Since 2000, CHoR has been the lead agency for Safe Kids Virginia, a program dedicated to preventing unintentional injuries to children ages 14 and under. These efforts are in collaboration with the hospital pediatric trauma center and include outreach, education and advocacy.

Our trauma program not only treats children after an injury occurs, but also provides injury prevention outreach and education through public awareness activities such as car seat safety checks, safety fairs, seasonal injury prevention activities and participation in public policy. We believe prevention is the best medicine and are committed to working with our community to keep children safe.
