Child Abuse Prevention Month Identity

Become a prevention partner today and be part of the statewide campaign to grow a better tomorrow for children in South Carolina. Prevention partners showcase the value of prevention by planting pinwheel gardens and sharing prevention messages with their communities. Join us and plant the seeds of a better tomorrow for children and families in South Carolina.

Child Abuse Prevention Month materials are a great tool for community engagement. One base box includes: 120 pinwheels, one yard signs, 10 pinwheel lapel pins, and other prevention materials. Additional materials can be purchased to support CAP Month activities and events.
