Child Abuse Awareness Month

ChildAbuseAwareness

Since 1985, April has been nationally recognized as Child Abuse Prevention Month. The Michigan Children's Trust Fund ( a division of the Department of Health and Human Services) has used this special time each year to acknowledge the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child maltreatment in all its forms. 

This year, a pinwheel garden planting event in recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month will occur on April 14, 2017 and remain on display until May 1, 2017 in front of the old courthouse and the Human Services Building. (Note: The pinwheel is the nationally recognized symbol for child abuse and neglect prevention. It also symbolizes the belief that every child has the right to grow and flourish to his/her full potential within a nurturing environment.) Approximately 390 pinwheels will be planted to recognize each of the identified victims of child abuse in Lenawee County in 2016. 

Our Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Day rally will take place at the Human Services Building in the River Raisin Room at 2:00 p.m.The theme of this year’s Child Abuse Prevention Month is The Power of One. This statewide initiative asserts that the power of one person, one community, one dollar and one action can make a positive impact on the prevention of child abuse.
