April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month

Congress first declared April National Child Abuse Prevention Month in 1983 as a way to raise awareness about child abuse and neglect.

Nearly 30 years later we still grapple with these issues as the numerous people working in the field, including at our Children's Safety Project, attempt to create a safe environment for the countless innocents struggling with abuse.

Whether or not you have an experience with abuse or neglect, we can all make a difference to help build strong families and communities. Learn more about Child Abuse Prevention Month, including tips and resources for care providers.  Consider helping a child directly by donating to the Children's Safety Project, where 85 percent of every dollar goes directly to programming.
