April is Child Abuse Awareness Month

The pinwheel serves as the national symbol for child abuse prevention.  It is a reflection of hope, health and safety – what we all desire for children throughout Lamar & Red River Counties and beyond.

Join us as we plant our Pinwheel Garden on Friday, April 1st, 2022.  

Children and families impacted by abuse are not alone. For over 20 years they have been seen and heard by our 15 multi-disciplinary team partner agencies dedicated to protecting children across the state of Texas. These professionals jointly investigate and prosecute child abuse cases while supporting 4000 children and their families with services and healing through the children’s advocacy center.

Our team is committed to addressing the complex issue of child abuse in Texas. But we can’t do it alone; it takes all of us. From knowing the signs and symptoms of abuse, to having courageous conversations about this issue with adults and children in your life, everyone can join our collective effort to protect children in our community.

These pinwheels represent HOPE for child abuse victims as they come out of the darkest moments of their lives.  These pinwheels also represent HOPE in a brighter future for these children- one that is carefree and safe.
