Child Abuse Prevention Month
Julia Braun Headshot

The month of April is national Child Abuse Prevention Month. Although child abuse occurs all year long, April allows our community to have a concentrated effort to become more aware of the realities of abuse and more importantly to GET INVOLVED to prevent abuse in Tarrant County. Whether you are interested in learning more or volunteering to help victims, the month of April gives plenty of opportunity for you to make a difference!
