April is Child Abuse Prevention Month (CAPM), opening the door for conversations in our community about breaking the cycle of violence.
CAPM was first recognized in 1983, and Old Mill Center for Children and Families has a sincere dedication to its cause. With programs such as the Relief Nursery and Healthy Families, OMC strives to create a collaborative community that works to improve the well-being of children and their families.
On March 28, 2018, Governor Kate Brown renewed Oregon’s commitment to the CAPM cause, recognizing that intervention and prevention is a shared responsibility between families and the community. The greatest deterrents of abuse are strong families and a supportive community.
Join us in empowering children and families by mentoring children and parents in need and by advocating for family friendly policies. A simple donation of your time today could change their world and brighten their future.
