The Florida Institute for Child Welfare seeks to promote safety, permanency, and well-being among the children and families of Florida that are involved with the child welfare system.

Child Abuse Prevention Month

Since 1983, April has been observed as Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Month to raise awareness and prevent child abuse in the community. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are not limited to only affecting the children or the families involved. The impact is felt at the community and state levels, and this impact can extend across generations. Communities and business play an important role in protecting children and strengthening families along with government efforts. Throughout CAP Month, and in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re reinforcing the message that “Everyone can make great childhoods happen—especially you, especially now!”. Find ways you can become involved through the Pinwheels for Prevention campaign. Learn more, including Florida-specific stats, in the following infographic from the Institute. We will be covering more on this topic for the month of April on our social media pages so be sure to follow along.
