Springtime at Dunebrook welcomes daffodils, bluebirds and Child Abuse Prevention Month.
During April, Dunebrook joins with agencies across the nation to energize communities in taking a stand against child abuse. Child abuse is a difficult topic to read about in the newspaper or hear about on the evening news. Any time a person is harmed or dies at the hands of someone else it is tragic; but, when a child is the victim, it’s especially heartbreaking. We cringe to think of what he or she endured. Unbelievably, the harm to a child comes most often – 70 percent of the time, in fact - at the hands of parents. (Children’s Bureau, 2016)
