Community Awareness Initiatives
PCAD advocates for legislation that reflects the best interest of children and families and that provides services for at risk and victimized children. PCAD also provides public awareness materials that educate the public about child abuse and neglect and ways to prevent it.
Prevent Child Abuse Delaware distributes thousands of blue pinwheels throughout the year through the Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign as a demonstration of the fast growing belief that we can prevent, not just respond to, child abuse and neglect. For more information visit the Pinwheels for Prevention page.
Bilingual Resource Guides are available to organizations that work with families. These guides offer support to service providers as they work with parents caregivers, and their children to prevent child maltreatment and promote social and emotional well-being. To order Resource Guides, email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a parent/caregiver for young children it is sometimes difficult to know what you can do to enhance the well being of your child. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention tells us that what all children need are safe, stable, and nurturing relationships. One of the ways to establish these relationships is by spending quality time with the children in your life every day.
