April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Events are held annually to raise awareness of the problem of child abuse in our community and across the nation. The pinwheel is the national symbol of child abuse prevention, as it represents the whimsical and carefree existence that all children deserve. Every April at CARE House pinwheels are “planted” around the building to honor the children they serve and to bring attention to the problem of child abuse in our community. This year, they invited community organizations, businesses and churches to join them in “planting” a pinwheel garden at their location. 
As CARE House is one of our major outreach programs, we are proud to support this activity. Thanks to the generous donor who paid for the pinwheels now gracing the area around our sign on Woodman Drive.
