CAP Plans Casper Pinwheel Garden For Child Abuse Prevention Month

It is clear from headlines that child abuse and neglect is a nationwide tragedy - and the impacts reverberate to us all. Abusing a child, for all obvious reasons, is a despicable act that results more times than not in the cycle of abuse continuing at the hands of those once abused. There will be a 303 pinwheels planted this year, one for every child victim of abuse and maltreatment CAP served in 2017. In 2015, it was reported in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico that an estimated 683,000 children were victims of child abuse or neglect and 1,670 children died as a result of abuse or neglect.

More pinwheels will be added throughout the month with a minimum donation of $10.

It's the only nationally distributed, evidence-based program proven to increase knowledge, improve attitudes and change child protective behaviors. The future prosperity and success of our children depends on the entire community working together to make families stronger, and creating spaces where children can thrive. If you are concerned about possible sexual abuse, ask questions.

Child abuse is a public health crisis.




"We will give our policy demands to the parliament, government and the president's office on Monday", said Odontuya Tsolmon, one of the protest organizers.

The biggest fundraising month of the year for the Henry County Carl Perkins Center has begun, with numerous events planned throughout April, which is Child Abuse Prevention Month.

"We encourage everyone in Stokes County to check out the hashtag #WearBlueDay on Twitter and Facebook to see how they can get involved during Child Abuse Prevention Month", said Robin Testerman, Executive Director from Children's Center.

The center is set up so the child who has been victimized need only speak once about the experience.
