National Child Abuse Prevention Month recognizes the importance of families and communities working together to strengthen families to prevent child abuse and neglect. Through this collaboration, prevention services and supports help protect children and produce thriving families.

DONATE securely online.

There are many community-wide events you can participate in and bring awareness to child abuse and raise much-needed funds to support our efforts.
