Do you believe in supporting communities & strengthening families?

So do we!

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month.
Let's work together to prevent abuse and neglect.

Here's how everyone can show their support:
Share the message that the well-being of children and families is directly related to if they live in supportive, strong, inclusive, and stable communities. Here's how:
  • For the month of April, share on social media:
    • The pinwheel as your profile pic, a symbol of the importance of child abuse prevention efforts
    • The Trust Facebook posts during April
    • A staff picture wearing blue - April 1st is Wear Blue Day
    • Tag the Trust @MaineChildrensTrust and use hashtags #CAPMonth #wearblueday2022 #GrowingBetterTogether
  • Connect with your local Prevention Councils, in every county in Maine, for additional events, trainings, and efforts happening in April.
  • Check off Maine Children's Trust on your State Income Tax form.

If your organization or business signs on as a Partner in Prevention they will:
  • Receive signage for your organization or business with prevention messaging.
  • Receive a Front Porch Project® of Maine training. Funded in part by donations on behalf of Marissa Kennedy, a child tragically lost to child abuse, this training offers strategies to support families in communities.
  • Be included in a press release sharing the Governor's Proclamation for April as Child Abuse Prevention Month.
  • Be highlighted as a partner on our Facebook page.
