Child Abuse Prevention Month

April is child abuse prevention month. Pinwheels for Prevention is a national and local public awareness campaign that puts a new spin on prevention. The campaign uses community activities and public policies to prioritize prevention right from the start, making sure child abuse and neglect never occur.

The pinwheel represents hope, health, and happiness. This uplifting symbol of childhood represents efforts to ensure the healthy development of children, while recognizing that child development is a building block for community and economic development. When children don’t have equal opportunities for growth and development, we put the future of our society at risk. A focus on innovative programming that lays the foundation for children’s safety, growth and development reduce the possibility of more serious problems occurring later.

For more information about the month of April, visit Missouri Kid's First website.

FACT: 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday.
