Plant Your Own Pinwheel Garden
April 2022 - April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, a time for communities to come together to build caring connections, supportive environments, and positive experiences for all children.

We know child maltreatment is a preventable problem. All adults play a role in building the safe, stable, nurturing homes and environments needed for the healthy development of our future generation of parents, leaders, and community members.

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!

Giving Tuesday
Join us for Giving Tuesday – November 30, 2021

Giving Tuesday was created years ago with the simple idea: a day to encourage people to do good. Whether helping a neighbor, showing up for the people you care about, sharing information about the causes close to your heart, or giving through a donation, Giving Tuesday is a chance for us to give together.

Domestic Violence Awareness

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It is a time for us raise awareness, to speak up, and support survivors of domestic violence, including the children who have witnessed this devastating but common issue.
