Child Abuse Prevention Month 2021

April is Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Month, a time to act collectively to raise awareness and empower people across the nation to play a role in making great childhoods happen. Throughout this crucial CAP Month, we’re reinforcing the message that “Every day, we help positive childhood experience take root!”

    • Children are locally grown. We work together to cultivate relationships, connections, and environments that help every child thrive.

    • We harvest what we sow. We plant seeds of support for all children to yield healthier adults with abundant futures.

    • Our work is rooted in science. We know positive childhood experiences in nurturing environments provide fertile ground for physical and mental health, learning, and social skills to flourish.

    • We unearth the possibilities. We focus on innovation every day to give every child what they need and to build bountiful, safe communities.

    • Planning and purpose create common ground. We share resources equitably, expand access to services, and balance conditions for positive childhood experiences to enrich every community.

    • We tend and replenish the soil. We offer homegrown solutions and hardy support to protect what we grow in all elements.

    • Hope and commitment are powerful fertilizers. We combine the promise of a better tomorrow with our resolve to nourish all children and their families in every season.
