April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

Child abuse and neglect is at an all-time high in Tom Green County and surrounding counties. In Tom Green County alone there were 583 cases of children that suffered abuse in 2014. CASA will host a Pinwheel Ceremony to bring awareness to this devastating problem on Tuesday, April 14th from 12-1pm. The pinwheel represents an uplifting symbol of childhood and a reflection of hope, health and safety for children in our community. Wear blue and join us on the Court House Lawn. There is no greater month than April to also consider becoming a CASA volunteer. If you have this on your heart and would like to visit with someone, call Brenda Stone at 656-0679. There is a great need. These children need us!
