It takes all of us working together to prevent child abuse

Prevention happens in partnership

Child Abuse Prevention Month Identity

Become a prevention partner today and be part of the statewide campaign to build strong families. Prevention partners showcase the value of prevention by planting pinwheel gardens and hosting awareness-raising events in their communities. The time is now to stand together 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 sign
  • 20 pinwheel lapel pins
  • 50 Positive Messages for Kids sticky notes
  • 50 Helping Kids Grow booklets

Additional materials can be purchased to support Child Abuse Prevention Month activities and events.

Be a prevention hero

This year, we want to showcase everyday heroes working to build strong families across our state. From the dedicated volunteers who lead parents groups to the prevention leaders innovating new ways to support families county or statewide, everyone can be a prevention hero.

Nominate a prevention hero in your community and honor the partnerships that make prevention happen every day. If your nominee is selected, they will be featured in a story on the Children's Trust website and social media channels, and the nominating organization will receive a small financial award of $100 to support the work of prevention in South Carolina.

Pledge for prevention

Take the Pledge

I pledge to be a good neighbor and help keep families strong and children safe. I will reach out to a family in my neighborhood, support a local family organization or know about family resources in my community.
