Help us highlight happy and healthy childhoods during the entire month of April by using #greatchildhoods or #preventionispossible and sharing a photo with us! If you are on Facebook or Twitter, you can also change your profile to your support for child abuse prevention!

 Our Pinwheels for Prevention Ceremony is just a few short weeks away. Planting a pinwheel garden is a beautiful way to show YOUR support for happy and healthy childhoods! If you have not yet sponsored a pinwheel, please consider doing so. If you want to try something different this year, purchase a pinwheel centerpiece!

Stewards of Children Facilitator Training is coming up in Kansas City on May 2 in Kansas City, MO. Learn how YOU can empower adults in your community to prevent child sexual abuse and become an authorized facilitator. Register today!

Finally, it is with great sadness that we said good-bye at the beginning of March to Cherisse Thibaut, our beloved prevention manager.  Cherisse was such a wonderful advocate for Missouri’s children and she will be greatly missed. We wish Cherisse much continued success!
