In 2019 PCAO became certified ACE Interface Presenters in order to do our part to “tell everyone” and promote healing for communities and individuals impacted by ACE’s, especially child abuse and neglect.
Pinwheels for Prevention® is a national public engagement campaign that began in 2008. Since then, over 5 million pinwheels have been displayed nationwide. The campaign symbol, a blue and silver pinwheel, is a reminder of the happy childhoods and bright futures that all children deserve. Prevent Child Abuse Oregon (PCAO) adopted the Pinwheels for Prevention® campaign to spread a message of resilience, engage communities, and inspire action across Oregon communities.
In 2019, Prevent Child Abuse Oregon began to convene a network of organizations that work in different capacities to strengthen families and protect children. The organizations were invited based on their statewide lens and reach in local communities with prevention programming and services. Our goal is to build deep partnerships that identify and address statewide challenges in the field of child abuse prevention.
