Child Abuse Prevention Month
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. This month is about bringing awareness to how we can stop the cycle of child abuse by being proactive through prevention.
Child abuse prevention focuses on families' strengths that can be built upon to care for their children safely before any abuse occurs.
The strategy for preventing child abuse is twofold. The short term plan involves education and intervention. In the long term, we want to raise children in safe and caring communities and environments so they can grow into healthy and stable adults.
