April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

Help a child become a hero – not a statistic

In California there are over 75,000 children in foster care. Children primarily come into foster care after being neglected, with some suffering physical or sexual abuse.

Prevention is the best hope for reducing child abuse and neglect and improving the lives of children and families. Preventing child abuse and strengthening families requires a shared commitment from individuals and organizations in every community.

Join us this month in spreading the word about National Child Abuse Prevention Month, consider fostering or adopting through foster care, and help provide a safe, loving environment for a child.
