It takes a community.  

Join us for Child Abuse Prevention Month April 2021

Isn’t it time that we focus on what unites us? In the Quad Cities we believe that all our kids deserve a safe and joyful childhood. This month, we celebrate the small actions each of us can take that make a big impact on the well-being of our children.

What is Child Abuse Prevention Month?

April is nationally recognized as Child Abuse Prevention Month, a time for the community to come together to show its support for children and families. Thousands of cases of child abuse and neglect are reported in the Quad Cities each year. But there’s good news! Child abuse is 100% preventable. We all have a role to play in making sure that our community is the best place for children and families to thrive. We invite you to join us as we invest in great childhoods and a healthy community.

It takes a village! Here are some simple, effective ways you can be involved in Child Abuse Prevention Month right here in our own community.
