Each April, people join the movement to promote Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Month to raise awareness that through the strengthening of families, child abuse can be prevented. Research has shown that parents and caregivers who have resources and support are more likely to provide safe and healthy homes for their children.

 

PCAC (Prevent Child Abuse Council) and CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Calaveras County invite you to be a part of our campaign!

 

LIGHT OF HOPE Ceremony & WEAR BLUE DAY  

Wed. April 11, 5:15PM

UCCE Calaveras Master Gardeners Demonstration Garden, Government Center, San Andreas

Share the flyer adobepdfand invite families and community members to the 2nd annual Light of Hope. Come to relax in the garden, hear unique and hopeful personal stories, enjoy refreshments, learn about resources, and connect with others. The event is free and open to all.  We encourage everyone to wear blue all day for kids!

 

We want everyone in our community to know how they can prevent child abuse. Become familiar with the Five Protective Factors of Strengthening Families: 
Resilience, Relationships, Knowledge, Support, and Communication.

Research shows that when these strengths or protective factors are well established, family strength and optimal child development emerge. Share the flyer and talk with your faith-based, community, or school group. Volunteer or create volunteer opportunities.  Commit to mentor a child or parent, advocate for family-friendly policies, or donate to child-serving organizations. Each of these actions can increase the protective factors in a community.
