Focusing on the initiative- dubbed the Porch Light Project – to safely reduce the number of children and youth in foster care in PA and to ensure a forever family for every child.

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month

Each April, we take time to recognize the important ways individuals and communities can come together to prevent child abuse and neglect. As National Child Abuse Prevention Month, we are joined in doing so by many like-minded organizations across the country.

This year, in addition to offering some tangible ways you can take action to protect children and support families in your own community, we also acknowledge the creative efforts by Pennsylvania’s Department of Human Services to support you in this important work. The KeepKidsSafe website has released powerful radio advertisements, educational videos, and printed materials you can use to raise awareness and educate your friends and family on reporting child abuse and neglect, as well as getting the necessary clearances to work and volunteer with children.

Here are the ways you can get involved in 2017’s National Child Abuse Prevention Month:

  • Save and share the ChildLine number – 1-800-932-0313. It’s a toll-free number for Pennsylvania’s child abuse hotline. The line is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and reports can be made anonymously. Give the number to friends, family and colleagues who might not have it in their phones. Remind them that anyone can (and should) report suspected child abuse or neglect.
  • Call ChildLine to report suspected abuse or neglect. If you’re a mandated reporter, remember: you can call or make your report online.
  • Visit the KeepKidsSafe website, here, to watch the new media resources mentioned above. Be sure to share the resources with your networks. This is a simple step we can all take to protect the children in our neighborhoods. Use the hashtags #KeepKidsSafe and #MakeTheCall on your social media accounts.
  • Visit the National Child Abuse Prevention Month website, here, to find additional useful resources to help promote the initiative.
  • Sign up for PPC’s email alerts, here, to be a voice for kids and stay up to date on the latest news in child welfare in PA.

We hope you’ll join us in these actions throughout April, in an ongoing effort to ensure all of Pennsylvania's children are raised in loving and knowledgeable families, free from abuse and neglect.

Caralyn University Reviews's Gravatar I totally agree with what you have stated here in this post but according to my observation, we should celebrate the whole year as a prevention for child abuse.
