Child Abuse Prevention Month








April marks Child Abuse Prevention Month

Each April, people join the movement to promote Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Month to raise awareness that child abuse is preventable. Here at The Child Abuse Prevention Center, we prevent child abuse and neglect effectively through safety, education, health and advocacy. For over forty years, the CAP Center has demonstrated a strong record of reducing child abuse cases by 97% among the children and families we serve.
