April Is National Child Abuse Prevention Month

National Child Abuse Prevention Month is an annual April observance created to raise awareness for a serious problem that shows no sign of ending. The annual commemoration started in 1983 and remains as important now as it was 35 years ago.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2015 saw 683,000 children victimized by neglect and physical abuse. Not only did that overall number grow 1.2 percent from the previous year, three key metrics involving referrals to and investigations by Child Protective Services also increased.

The statistics are alarming and should serve as a wake-up call to not only stem the growth, but also put an end to child maltreatment.


With a mission to promote safe environments, Child Crisis Arizona is doing its part by providing services to the state's most vulnerable children and families. Entering its fifth decade, the group was established after two high-profile and family-focused agencies (Crisis Nursery and Child Crisis Center) decided to merge and strengthen their already Herculean efforts.

To promote National Child Abuse Prevention Month, DeShon Laraye Pullen PLC is offering clients who make a donation of $50 to Child Crisis Arizona a free initial consultation at our office or a half-hour meeting over the phone.
