April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month
National Child Abuse Prevention Month is a time to acknowledge the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child abuse and neglect, and to promote the social and emotional well-being of children and families. Each year, during the month of April, communities are encouraged to share child abuse and neglect prevention awareness strategies and activities and promote prevention across the country.
Strong, nurturing communities that are supportive of families can get involved and play a role in preventing child abuse and neglect and promoting child and family well-being. Events are scheduled throughout April in Buncombe County to address the prevention of child abuse.
