Child Abuse Prevention Services

April is nationally recognized as Child Abuse Prevention Month. In observance of this, Child Abuse Prevention Services is planning a number of activities and events to highlight the prevention of child abuse that takes place in our community.

Pinwheels are the symbol of a happy, carefree childhood and you will see them around Marshalltown this month. Also making a return are the Blue Kids…these three foot tall wooden “kids” are a symbol of awareness and prevention efforts.

Throughout the month, you will hear and see more about the work our agency does. We truly believe that TOGETHER WE CAN CREATE GREAT CHILDHOODS!
