KUSA- April is national child abuse prevention month. Throughout the month the City of Denver will be turning blue to draw attention to child abuse and how it can be prevented.
As a part of the month-long campaign, blue pinwheel gardens are being planted all over the state. On Thursday, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock helped plant some in the 9News Backyard.
Five ways people in our community can support families and children
1. Be a Bounce Back Family
2. Making Parent Growth a Priority
3. Helping Kids Develop Skills
4. Providing a Network of Support
5. Offering Professional Support
Variety of ways to get involved:
o Attend a free Love & Logic Parenting Workshop
o Plant a pinwheel garden
o Nominate a person dedicated to helping families and kids for the "Be the One Colorado" award
o Attend the Denver CASA Light of Hope Breakfast
