Child Abuse Prevention Month

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

What is Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Month?

April is a month dedicated to spreading awareness about the realities of child abuse, which affect our communities everyday.

What are we doing for CAP Month?

Pinwheels are the national symbol for child abuse prevention. They represent the joy and happiness that every child deserves. You can find pinwheels and educational materials at Dorchester and Berkeley County libraries, YMCAs, police departments, sheriff’s offices, DSS offices, and solicitors’ offices.
In honor of CAP month, we want to highlight our prevention education programs.

If you are interested in learning more about our prevention training, please contact or visit our website listed below.

Please join us for a tour of the Dorchester Children’s Advocacy Center to find out what we do and why we do it. A catered lunch will be provided. Community Awareness Luncheons are held typically monthly and are open to the public. We will be hosting a luncheon on April 21st to discuss Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Tune in to our podcast “Teaming Against Trauma” on Spotify or Apple podcasts to hear us talk about CAP Month activities and spread awareness about child abuse in our community.
