April is Child Abuse Prevention month!

In this unprecedented and ever-changing time, one thing is certain to ensure that our children, families and communities thrive during the COVID-19 public health crisis and recover from the economic impact as quickly as possible, we must all do our part to make #greatchildhoods happen in every household and community in Colorado right now.

 

When parents are stressed, have few social connections, and limited access to resources to support their families, the risk to children of experiencing toxic stress and child maltreatment is great.

 

Along with our partner organizations, the Broomfield Early Childhood Council, are promoting resources, support tools, and connections to ensure families receive positive messages during this trying time AND that all our children are valued, healthy and thriving.

When you see the pinwheels planted around town this month, please remember that child abuse IS preventable! Spread the word of these resources and help support the 5 Protective Factors for our Broomfield families. 

Broomfield Mayor, Patrick Quinn, and City Council support Pinwheels for Prevention! Read the Mayor's Proclamation here!
