Child Abuse Prevention Month

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, when people across the country come together to show their support for nurturing families who provide happy, healthy childhoods.

Every year Pinwheels for Prevention — the national symbol for CAP Month — are planted in the ground or share among communities to raise awareness of the need for programs that focus on child development and nurturing families, polices that strengthen families and awareness in the community that we all have a role to play in prevention.

Take a look at our Thirty Ways to Prevent Child Abuse and Neglect, and choose which ways you can get involved this April and beyond.


Many thanks to our wonderful 2017 CAP Month sponsors.

Please let them know you appreciate their support of our efforts and of the children and families of Louisiana.
