National Child Abuse Prevention Month
April is a time to raise awareness of child abuse and acknowledge the importance of families and communities coming together to prevent abuse. The majority of child abuse cases stems from circumstances and conditions that can be preventable when community programs and systems are available. Through the Paint Our Town Blue campaign, our goal is to create a unified voice for the children in our community by educating and empowering individuals to become advocates and take action. We will rally our neighbors, businesses, schools, friends and families to make a difference in the lives of children across our county. By promoting safety, awareness and dialogue, we can prevent abuse from happening in the first place and help keep our children safe.
