April is Child Abuse Prevention Month
The prevalence of child abuse in our communities is heartbreaking. Each day, many instances go unreported and countless children are subject to abuse and neglect. April was first declared Child Abuse Prevention Month by presidential proclamation in 1983. Since then, April has been a time to acknowledge the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child abuse. April is a time to recognize that we each play a part in promoting the social and emotional well-being of children and families in our communities. Learn more at the Keenan Abuse Prevention Center website or the California Department of Social Services website,
