Child Abuse Prevention Month 2022

April 1 - May 1

WHAT IS CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION MONTH

Since 1983, April has been designated as Child Abuse Prevention Month. Each April, communities are encouraged to increase awareness about child and family well-being, and work together to implement effective strategies that support families and prevent child abuse and neglect.

HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?

The CPCA has events and ways that you can participate throughout the month of April in order to raise awareness and help our mission to end child abuse in the Hudson Valley.
