Child Abuse Prevention Month
During Child Abuse Prevention Month in April, we raise awareness of abuse and neglect in the community. According to the Ohio Children’s Trust Fund, every 30 minutes a child abuse case is substantiated or reported in Ohio. Last year, Children Services received over 32,000 reports of child abuse and neglect. Your support can make a tremendous difference in the life of an abused or neglected child.
Join us in fighting child abuse and neglect. As an "every day superhero" you can help prevent harm through through small acts of kindness like holding a crying baby, volunteering in your community or babysitting for an overwhelmed mother.
Franklin County Children Services honors Child Abuse Prevention Month by teaming with The Center for Family Safety and Healing and the Ohio Children’s Trust Fund to educate the community about preventing child abuse and neglect. Learn more from our community partners via their websites:
