Help Prevent Child Abuse This April
Child Abuse Prevention Month is observed every year in the United States and is dedicated to raising awareness and preventing child abuse and neglect. Nearly 700,000 children in the United States are experiencing abuse every year. HCWC remains dedicated to ending violence in our communities and serves children through our children’s advocacy center, Roxanne’s House, which provides crucial services to children who need them. HCWC’s child advocates and prevention educators work year-round raising awareness about the dynamics of child abuse and promoting steps to prevent child abuse in our community.
How to Listen. Believe. Support. This April
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, a national effort to raise public awareness about sexual assault and educate communities and individuals on how to prevent sexual violence.
Sexual assault is a pervasive and unfortunately common occurrence. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men experienced some form of sexual violence in their lifetime. This means someone you know has likely been a victim of sexual assault.
