3 Ways You Can Help Prevent Child Abuse

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and we’d like to share three simple ways you can help make our community safer for children:

Raise Awareness

In 2017, a staggering 674,000 children in the U.S. were victims of abuse and neglect. Help raise awareness of child abuse and neglect prevention by planting a pinwheel garden, the national symbol for the great childhoods all children deserve.

Share Resources

Let parents know about community supports like Family Connects Durham, a free nurse home visiting program for any family a with newborn. Nurse home visits make the whole community a safer place to grow up.

Spread the Word

Make A Gift

You can support our comprehensive work preventing child abuse. From teaching parents how to create safe, healthy homes to teaching child welfare workers how to implement trauma-informed practices, CCFH is on the front lines of prevention.
