Child Abuse Prevention Month


April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. The PINWHEELS has become a national symbol for child abuse and neglect. In celebration of Child Abuse Prevention month, we should all be reminded that every child deserves a happy and healthy childhood.

Approximately 772,000 children are confirmed by Child Protective Services each year as being abused or neglected. These confirmed cases, however, represent only a fraction of the true magnitude of the problem.

There is overwhelming scientific evidence that child maltreatment can lead to a broad range of physical and emotional health problems. Let us all promote the development of safe, stable, and nurturing relationships between children and parents or caregivers.
