April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Child abuse is a national tragedy affecting more than three million children annually and causing the deaths of three children every day. Preventing and reporting child abuse is one of the most important things a community can do for the future of its children. Statistics vary, but for example, Franklin County Children Services receives more than 13,000 reports of child abuse each year and serves more than 28,000 children and their families (Franklin County Children's Services).Here are some resources that may be useful during this month.
