April - Child Abuse Prevention Month

April -Child Abuse Prevention Month Events

The Lake County Children's Council, in partnership with numerous Lake County agencies and organizations, hope to celebrate April - Child Abuse Prevention Month with multiple events throughout our community. 

When you think of "Child Abuse Prevention" we would like you to think about how your positive encounters with children in our community can help negate the effects of neglect or abuse that someone may be suffering. It's that easy. It only takes 1 positive connection to change a child's life.

Follow us on Facebook at the Lake County Office of Education page, or the Lake County Cares For our Kids page.
