April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and we are proud to partner with PCA Chapters across the country to promote safe kids through the Pinwheels for Prevention campaign. You may be seeing our signature blue and silver pinwheels pop up all over the state- in display cases, at front desks, and in gardens large and small. The symbol of the pinwheel represents the safe and happy childhoods all kids deserve and are a reminder that we all have a role in creating #GreatChildhoods. There are activities all month long- see our calendar to learn more.

For real-time updates from events across the state, find us on Facebook.
