Please join OFCA during the month of April in recognizing the importance of families, caregivers, and communities collaborating to prevent child maltreatment. This year, National Child Abuse Prevention Month focuses on the theme “Building Community, Building Hope.” A key part of OFCA’s mission is to foster and support physical, emotional, and social well-being of children and families. During April we will share information and resources on abuse prevention and response strategies, resources, and educational opportunities. Of special interest to our OFCA community is the Tipsheet for Parents and Families.
Visit the National Child Abuse Prevention Month website to learn more about how we can work together to build hope for children and families.
