Child Abuse Prevention & Awareness Month

National Child Abuse Prevention Month recognizes the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child abuse and neglect. Prevention services and supports developed by this collaboration can help parents, other caregivers, and communities protect children and strengthen families.

Stand Up for Abused Children

April is Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month in Grayson County and nationwide. Here are some ways to help in April and throughout the year.

  • Volunteer. CASA volunteer advocates are critically needed to speak for abused and neglected children in court. You can help an abused child have a loving, permanent home by becoming a CASA volunteer.
  • Go blue. Wear blue to support for protecting children and encourage friends and colleagues to do the same.
  • Learn. Join our email list for up-to-date information about child welfare and other ways to help. (Enter your email address in the sidebar on this page).
  • Lend your voice. Share a simple message of hope on your social networks about how others can help abused children have safe, loving homes by supporting Grayson County.
    • Like us on Facebook for updated information on child abuse and how others can help. Share posts to help spread the word about CASA of Grayson County.
  • Check out the Child Advocacy Center’s Learn How to Recognize & Report Child Abuse.
    • Sign up and attend one of our free classes during April to learn how to recognize the signs and symptoms and report abuse.
