Ways to Help

Everyone has a role to play in preventing child abuse. From supporting a stressed parent to participating in an April event in your community to becoming a CASA volunteer. Below are just a few examples.

  • Encourage your community leaders to learn about the protective factors that prevent at-risk parents from becoming abusers 
  • Encourage local service providers to produce a directory of available services that are easy to find in the community
  • If your governor, mayor, or other local elected official is not planning a public statement for Child Abuse Prevention Month, consider starting and publicizing a petition to change his or her mind!
  • Organize a day to wear blue for abuse prevention awareness. Contact local businesses and government and get their employees involved.
  • Become a CASA volunteer!

Learn more ways to get involved at the US Department of Health and Human Services website.

If you are a CASA or guardian ad litem program, find a rich array of resources to support your local efforts in the community section of this website.
