APRIL IS NATIONAL CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION MONTH

Prevention happens in partnership. Raising awareness is a critical and foundational step in preventing child abuse. When we take action, children are safer and have the opportunity to grow up healthy and strong. Child Abuse Prevention Month is our opportunity to build support for what we know must happen year-round: supporting parents and caregivers and building the relationships and connections in communities so that families can readily access what they need to help every child. Join us with others across the state in sharing this important message and by displaying a pinwheel, a symbol of our message.


Here's how everyone can show their support: Share the message that the well-being of children and families is directly related to if they live in supportive, strong, inclusive, and stable communities. Here's how:


For local organizations, join your local Prevention Council's events, activities, and more for the month of April.





For statewide organizations, please join Maine Children's Trust as a Partner in Prevention. In its third year, your statewide business, organization, or association you can join our annual public awareness initiative that leverages our collective voice to amplify the message that supportive communities and strong families prevent child abuse. Show your network and communities that you stand with children and families across Maine to build a stronger support system.
