National Child Abuse Prevention Month recognizes the importance of communities working together to help families thrive and prevent child maltreatment. During the month of April and throughout the year, 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.
This year the Children’s Bureau’s theme for National Child Abuse Prevention Month is Thriving Children and Families: Prevention With Purpose.
