April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. This observance is led locally every year by the Exchange Club Family Resource Center and is supported by other local human service agencies.
Tina Bartleson, FRC Executive Director, says that her center is poised to help families who are at risk of child abuse; the ultimate goal is prevention.
CAP Month will kick off with a Pinwheel Garden Planting this Thursday, April 6th at 1:30 pm on the lawn of Harbin Clinic Pediatrics, 85 John Maddox Drive in Rome.
