National Child Abuse Prevention Month

April is National Child Abuse Prevention  (CAP).  CAP is a time to acknowledge the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child abuse and neglect, and to promote the social and emotional well-being of children and families.  

During this time, people across the country come together to show their support for nurturing families who provide happy, healthy childhoods.  Every year Pinwheels for Prevention - the national symbol for CAP Month - are planted in the ground to raise awareness of the need for programs that focus on child development and nurturing families, policies that strengthen families and awareness in the community that we all have a role to play in prevention.
