2021 - April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, a nationally designated month to acknowledge the importance of communities working together to prevent child abuse and neglect. During this month the Children’s Advocacy Project will be sharing ways you can get involved in raising awareness for child abuse prevention every day of the month, check out the calendar below for ideas on how to get involved or follow us on Facebook!
Every year, the Children’s Advocacy Project plants a pinwheel garden to help raise awareness for child abuse prevention. This year, we are asking you to join us by planting a pinwheel garden of your very own during the month of April!
In 2020, home became the intended safe space to shelter from coronavirus, but the sad fact for many children is the majority of child abuse happens at home and happens within the family. With schools closed, teachers and other school staff who make up the largest portion of child abuse reports were no longer regularly seeing children to be able to spot the signs of abuse.
The Children’s Advocacy Project helps to create a more efficient response to child abuse. Through coordinating services with a team of committed agencies and individual professionals, we create a more effective community response to child maltreatment.
We are committed to improving the lives of victims of child abuse and neglect in our community.
