National Child Abuse Prevention Month

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month which recognizes the importance of families and communities working together to strengthen families to prevent child abuse and neglect. Collaboration, prevention services, and supports help protect children and produce thriving families. You may have noticed the Pinwheel Garden planted in front of the Family Court Building off of Bonanza Road showing our support for the great childhoods all children deserve. The Pinwheels for Prevention campaign was created in 2008 by Prevent Child Abuse America as a national effort to change the way our nation thinks about prevention, focusing on community activities and public policies that prioritize prevention right from the start to make sure child abuse and neglect never occur. Shining in the sun, the pinwheel is reflective of the bright future all children deserve and our belief that getting it right early is less costly than trying to fix it later.
