Join Us on Friday, April 5th for
Child Abuse Prevention Awareness

What is Child Abuse Prevention Month?

Child Abuse Prevention Month has been observed each April since its first presidential proclamation in 1983. Since that time, millions of Americans have participated in this national campaign. Individuals, organizations, and communities across the United States plant pinwheels tie ribbons, organize training, host fundraisers, and support a multitude of other activities celebrating healthy, happy childhoods and raising awareness that all children deserve to grow up in nurturing safe homes.
