Child Abuse Awareness Month Ceremony Set for April 21

Mid-Valley Parenting offers classes based on your child's age and in communities around the county.

Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month is an opportunity for all of us to start the conversation in our communities about how we can keep our children safe and provide services to meet their basic needs.

"Addiction is a key trauma indicator", says Janelle Krueger, director of services for Hope House.

It's not that "stranger danger" isn't still risky, it just means educating both parents and children on prevention and research is an important step.

"Every year the CPCA serves thousands of children and families in Dutchess County, and Marcus Molinaro has been a tireless advocate", said Mary Fleming, interim executive director of the CPCA. "That is why money invested in effected prevention and early intervention programs are so important and will result in future financial savings". All HCWC services are free and confidential. It was officially launched in April 2013 as an initiative led by Kosair Charities and has grown to be a statewide effort.

"CASA staff are available to speak with church congregations on Blue Sunday (or any Sunday leading up to it) about the dangers of child abuse, the importance of prevention and how CASA volunteers are working to help change the lives of these vulnerable children", Crosby said.

Family & Children's Center works to support the collaboration between legal, social, health and child protection experts to ensure a child will have a safe network to go to in case of abuse.

"The reason we do this is because it is very impactful", McQueen said.

Abuse and neglect can occur in all types of families, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic status or educational achievements. Established in 1987 when the Kentucky Chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America merged with Parent's Anonymous of Kentucky.

With that being said, the BRTC Community Connections Club along with our Student Government Association invites you to join our community and our nation as we walk in honor of the innocent victims of child abuse. "But thank goodness we're here for these children".
