April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

Since 1983, when April was designated as Child Abuse Prevention Month, communities across the country have used this month-long observance to increase awareness of child abuse and its prevention. It is a time when individuals, schools, businesses, hospitals, religious organizations, and social service agencies join to educate everyone about child abuse and neglect prevention. Recognizing that everyone can participate in helping to strengthen families can have an enormous impact on our children’s health and success.
