April 2019 designated Child Abuse prevention month
DeWitt County Judge Daryl L. Fowler signed a proclamation recognizing the month of April 2019 to be Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month in the county of DeWitt. Child abuse prevention and awareness is the first step to ending the cycle of abuse in our communities. Golden Crescent CASA works with abused and neglected children to get them placed into permanent and nurturing homes as quickly as possible.
If you suspect abuse or neglect in a child please call the Child Abuse Hotline 1-800-252-5400.
