Statewide Support of Child Abuse Prevention Month – 99 Proclamations
Prevent Child Abuse Iowa (PCA Iowa) has set an audacious goal for Child Abuse Prevention Month in April—a proclamation from county supervisors or local leaders in all 99 counties across the state. In 2021, PCA Iowa received a Child Abuse Prevention Month (CAP Month) proclamation from Governor Reynolds. This announcement proclaims that “every child can have a great childhood by making sure each family has the support and education they need in raising their children in safe, nurturing environments.” For 2022, the goal is 99 times bigger. To learn more about the project read our press release.
