April is Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month
Each year, over 600,000 children in the United States experience abuse or neglect, ushering many of them into Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court and foster care systems. A child in foster care, on average, will move into multiple homes and attend multiple schools. All this chaos and inconsistency has long-term effects. Prevention in Partnership is this year’s prevention theme for Child Abuse Prevention Month in Virginia. It highlights that we all have a role in disrupting the cycles of child abuse, neglect and poverty by strengthening Virginia’s families and communities.
