National Child Abuse Prevention Month
April 1, 2015 at 3:00pm
Coffee County Department of Human Resources Offices
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. This month and throughout the year, Coffee County Department of Human Resources encourages all individuals and organizations to play a role in making Coffee County a better place for children and families. By ensuring that parents have the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to care for their children, we can help promote children’s social and emotional well-being and prevent child maltreatment within families and communities. April is a time to celebrate the important role that communities play in protecting children. Everyone’s participation is critical. Focusing on ways to build and promote the protective factors, in every interaction with children and families, is the best thing our community can do to prevent child maltreatment and promote optimal child development.
This year Coffee County Department of Human Resources will be holding a Proclamation Day to raise awareness for Child Abuse. The event will take place on April 1, 2015 at 3:00pm here at Coffee County DHR office.
