Child Abuse and Neglect Public Awareness Campaign
  • The statewide hotline for reporting child abuse and neglect launched on January 1. 
  • The Public Awareness campaign is launching this week! 
The campaign will include statewide paid media, social media efforts, a launch press 
event at the Capitol, and other activities. Ways to get involved:

1.Become a Campaign Partner: everyone plays a role in the prevention of child abuse and neglect. We need partners in all sectors, from 501c3 organizations and government agencies, to businesses and community groups, actively participating in this public education effort by doing things like: 
  • Utilizing the campaign tool-kit to promote the hotline; 
  • Serving as a campaign resource for local media; and 
  • Organizing local events and activities that engage the public in the prevention child abuse and neglect. Learn more at
2. Register your April Child Abuse Prevention Activities: we have created a statewide event calendar for Child Abuse Prevention Month. We would love to find out what Prevention activities you have planned. Register your project and view the statewide calendar of events at

3. Join the Public Awareness Subcommittee: a group of stakeholders from across the state gather monthly to discuss the campaign and provide feedback on campaign elements. Anyone can join this group and attend the meetings.

4. Spread the Word: we are creating an electronic campaign toolkit full of resources (brochures, posters, social media content, etc.). This toolkit will be available on our website in April. Please help us spread the word by using these resources, and let us know if we can provide anything else to help you publicize the hotline.

Please encourage your colleagues and partners to get involved!
