Be a Champion for Children.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

Children thrive when adults invest in their care and well-being and when communities wrap families in love and support. South Carolina children need us, and they need you.

Be a youth mentor. Cook dinner for a family in your neighborhood. Volunteer your time and talents to a local community organization. Advocate for family-friendly policies in your workplace. Be a voice for kids at the statehouse. Make a donation. This how you can be a champion for children.

No matter what you do, you have the power to make a difference. And, when we all do our part, we help each other be resilient in tough times, break generational cycles of abuse and ensure safety and stability for children at home. One more case of child abuse is one too many.

Join us today.
