April is Child Abuse Prevention Month
The theme for Child Abuse Prevention Month is “Help Great Childhoods Happen.” While 87% of adults across America believe that child abuse and neglect is a preventable problem, most don’t know how they can help.
New Hope Blount County Children’s Advocacy Center is a child-friendly, child safe place for child victims of sexual and physical abuse, providing comprehensive, coordinated services to children and their protective family members. We provide the Stewards of Children training free to adults in Blount County to learn how to recognize and prevent child sexual abuse.
Child Abuse Prevention Month is set aside to raise awareness about child abuse in our community and nationally. One aspect of the campaign is the Pinwheel Gardens that will be popping up in various places around our community. The pinwheel has come to serve as the national symbol of the great childhoods we want for all children. The more we can show people how simple actions relate back to child abuse prevention, the better people will understand what prevention is in the first place.
Child Abuse Prevention Month is the perfect time to encourage action to prevent child abuse.
