April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month

The theme for this year's National Child Abuse Prevention Month is "Making Meaningful Connections." When we make meaningful connections with the children, youth, and families in our communities, we can help parents build the knowledge and skills and access the resources necessary to raise happy and healthy children. Everyone can play a role in preventing child abuse and neglect and promoting child and family well-being.
