Growing a Better Tomorrow for All Children, Together


Communities have a BIG influence on families’ lives.

Every day, we help positive childhood experiences take root. Just like a plant is more likely to thrive in a garden with good soil and plenty of sunlight and water, families are more likely to thrive in nurturing communities.

All parents and caregivers need support sometimes, we can all help by ensuring children have positive experiences and families have the resources they need, when they need them.

When parents, caregivers, family, friends, neighbors, employers and elected leaders work together to increase five critical protective factors in families’ lives, that is when we can prevent child abuse, strengthen families and build brighter childhoods.

April Is Child Abuse Prevention Month

Around the month of April, for more than ten years now, you may have seen gardens of pinwheels planted in the community, at school, day care or a local hospital or nonprofit organization, and wondered, why? It’s because planting pinwheels represents the bright childhoods we all want for children.

Each year, the hope is you will do more than see pinwheels in your community.  There are many ways to get involved and learn more during child abuse prevention month and all year long.

Thank you to our 2022 sponsors!
