Say Something, Do Something for Kids

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month

We believe that every child deserves to grow up in a safe, stable, and nurturing environment. Please join the campaign to “Say Something, Do Something for Kids,” an initiative to help promote and strengthen child abuse prevention efforts in Wisconsin.

Children are the foundation of our society, our community and our future. Children raised in loving and supportive environments are more likely to prosper academically and financially, becoming successful contributing members of society. Wisconsin must be a leader and champion for all of our children. We need to enhance the success of our communities through leadership that promotes programs and policies that seek to transform the lives of children and families. Focusing on preventing child abuse and neglect results in better childhoods, ultimately saving millions of dollars currently needed for the services to address the short and long term effects of abuse on children, their families, and our communities. The savings generated through prevention can be used to serve our communities in other ways, making them safer, economically successful, and an overall great place to live and grow.
