Since 1983, April has been dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and neglect through the observation of National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The observance serves to educate parents and the community about warning signs and helpful resources. It also reinforces that the safety and well-being of children is a shared community responsibility. Your intervention could help a child at risk.
There is no way to predict who will abuse a child. Offenders come from all ranks, races, religions and income levels. The following information will help you recognize suspected child abuse, learn how to report it and find assistance through the military and civilian communities.
