April Is National Child Abuse PREVENTION Month

April marks National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Child Abuse Prevention Month raises awareness nationally and encourages families and communities to work together to learn how to prevent child abuse and neglect and why a vigilant community is the best defense to prevent and report suspected child abuse or neglect to local child protective services agencies or law enforcement.  

Child Abuse is a national epidemic in the United States. Approximately 1 in 7 children have experienced child abuse or neglect in the last year. Nationally, a child abuse report is made every 10 seconds.  In Ohio, a child is abused and every 30 minutes.

Each year, communities across the nation plan month-long activities to help raise awareness and educate the community-at-large about vital importance of child abuse and neglect prevention.
