Child Abuse Prevention Month 2023
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.
Listen to Q92
Every Tuesday, tune in to hear CPCA staff and Q92 discuss everyday parenting tips anyone can use to stay better connected with their children and teens.
Restaurant Week for Child Abuse Prevention
Help protect children when you dine in or take out. Grab a meal from our partnering restaurants and a portion of your sales will be donated back to The CPCA. Tag us on Facebook or Instagram and use the hashtag #CPCARestaurantWeek to let us know where you’ve been!
Display A Pinwheel
Pinwheels have been used a symbol for child abuse prevention. A pinwheel connotes playfulness, joy, and childhood. It has come to serve as a physical reminder of the great childhoods we want for all children. And as a symbol, the cyclical nature of the pinwheel calls to mind the positive cycles of love and support we want to help families create.
