Plant Your Own Pinwheel Garden
Planting pinwheels represents the happy, healthy childhoods we want for all children.

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!

Child Abuse and Covid-19

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.

Give advocacy.

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.

Child Abuse Prevention Month

April 30 marks the last day of Child Abuse Prevention Month, but child abuse doesn’t end at the end of April, and neither can prevention. 

Child abuse is happening all of the time, every month of the year, at all hours of the day. In April alone, an estimated 150 children in the United States will die due to abuse of neglect. In reality that number is likely much greater. Now just image that number every month for a year. Those children and the children who live through abuse every day is why we must continue to work as a community to prevent child abuse beyond the month of April.
