April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

kp-795fApril is Child Abuse Prevention Month please join us by


Children deserve to be cherished and they thrive when adults care. They depend on adults for their safety. Unfortunately many children are abused by those adults in their lives who they should be able to trust. More than 90% of children are abused by someone they know, including family members or friends.

Most children never report being abused. They are often threatened or pressured to stay silent. We ask you as adults to be watchful for signs of abuse and always take it seriously when children speak of being abused. Report suspected child abuse to the police, or your child protective service agency. Children are our future and protecting them is everyone’s job. Every child matters.

There’s No Excuse For Child Abuse
