Please Join Us for the Kick-Off of Child Abuse Prevention Month CASA of Central VA joins with our local departments of social services, community partners and public officials to proclaim April as Child Abuse Prevention Month. Pinwheel gardens will be planted in honor of children who were abused and neglected last year in our communities. Public officials will be proclaiming April as Child Abuse Prevention month with the reading of Proclamations. Please join us and our community partners to promote awareness and prevention of child abuse and neglect. The pinwheel has come to serve as the national symbol of the great childhood we want for our children. We all can make a difference as we stand together for children and promote ways to make great childhoods happen.
