Child Abuse Prevention Month

Child Abuse Prevention Month

As the leader of Prevent Child Abuse Minnesota, FamilyWise is committed to taking an active role in National Child Abuse Prevention Month each April.

April is Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Month and there are many ways that you can get involved with FamilyWise this April:

Read a proclamation in recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month signed by Governor Tim Walz: State of Minnesota Child Abuse Prevention Month Proclamation. There were also proclamations made in the City of Minneapolis and the City of Saint Paul.

 

To plant the seeds of purposeful prevention, we’ve put together a list of Every Day Actions you can take to prevent child abuse. 

  • Educate yourself and others about child abuse and how to prevent it
  • Address factors that contribute to child abuse, like homelessness and hunger
  • Support a parent or child in your life
  • Be an advocate for children and families
  • Connect with FamilyWise
