Child Abuse Prevention Month

Now available

in Spanish!


During this month we are going to focus on strengthening families and keeping children safe by sharing and discussing The 5 Protective Factors. The 5 Protective Factors provide parents with specific tools to nurture and support the well-being of their children. 

How To Report Abuse

"If I see, hear, suspect, or in any way become aware that a child is being abused, I will not keep silent. I will have the courage to help that child break free of the silence, secrecy, and shame that should never define a child's life."
~ Quote from article "We all have a role in stopping abuse "
by Chris Kirchner, Philadelphia Children's Alliance
