We all have a stake in ensuring that parents have access to the resources and support they need to be successful. Communities play an important role in finding the strength they need to raise safe, healthy and productive children.Strong, nurturing communities that are supportive of families can get involved and play a role in preventing child abuse and neglect and promoting child and family well-being. Help raise public awareness about preventing child maltreatment and enhancing child well-being in your community. Spread the word, create interest, and encourage those in your network to get involved!
April is nationally recognized as National Child Abuse Prevention Month. It 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.
