April Is National Child Abuse Prevention Month

Since 1983, April has been designated as National Child Abuse Prevention month, as a way to remind us all to recommit ourselves to providing support to families and taking an active role in working to prevent child abuse. The White House and various states release proclamations to affirm this re-dedication and encourage us all to take steps in raising awareness of child abuse prevention and promoting child and family well-being.
