April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month

Monday, April 3, 2017, Mesa County Commissioners proclaim April as Child Abuse Prevention Month in Mesa County. 

All citizens can become involved in efforts to support families, so that children may be raised in a safe, nurturing environment. Preventing child abuse and neglect depends on the involvement of all people in the community.

The Mesa County Department of Human Services hopes to raise awareness that effective child abuse prevention succeeds because of partnerships created among social service agencies, families, neighbors, schools, religious organizations, law enforcement agencies and the business community.  Parents, families and community members can and must help reduce child abuse and neglect in Mesa County by promoting the benefits of seeking out groups, agencies and resources that can assist a parent in providing a loving, supportive and violence-free home.
