April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, a time to celebrate the good things our community does and lift up the work and partners we still need to ensure every child has the chance to thrive.


Child Advocates of CT strives every day to transform the lives of vulnerable children and youth by providing trained and supervised one-on-one volunteer advocates in the courtroom and community.


The most common type of maltreatment is neglect. In Federal fiscal year 2020, about 3.9 million referrals were made to child protective services concerning the safety and well-being of approximately 7.1 million children. Last year, an estimated 618,000 children were found to be victims of child abuse or neglect nationwide.
