  • Child Abuse Awareness & Prevention:

    When we work to protect children from abuse and neglect, we not only reap the benefit of a healthier, happier child, but we also benefit as a whole community. Studies have shown time and again that protecting our children from abuse, neglect, and domestic violence today means they are less likely to have problems with addiction, employment, mental illness, and more.

     

    Do You know a child who is being abused? Call the DSHS 24-hour hotline at 1-866-363-4276.
