April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. This year’s theme is “Building Community, Building Hope.”
Communities across the country have a great influence in families’ lives. Every person one can get involved and play a role in preventing child abuse and neglect and promoting child and family well-being. Social workers are in a unique position to get involved in some of these efforts.
