The Family Tree Center and the The Parenting Place in Missoula collaboratively form Prevent Child Abuse Montana, a state chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America.
Pinwheels for Prevention
Our Pinwheels for Prevention event – a national campaign in cooperation with Prevent Child Abuse America (PCA) raises awareness of the problem of child abuse and neglect. This symbol of a happy childhood is (not-so-coincidentally) also the vibrant symbol of Prevent Child Abuse America’s efforts to change the way our nation thinks about child abuse prevention. It represents the importance of focusing on community activities and public policies that make prevention a priority to ensure that child maltreatment never occurs.
Join us in preventing the abuse and neglect of our nation’s children by participating in Pinwheels for Prevention™, Prevent Child Abuse America’s campaign introducing the pinwheel as the new symbol for child abuse and neglect prevention nationwide.
The pinwheel represents Prevent Child Abuse America’s efforts to change the way our nation thinks about prevention, focusing on community activities and public policies that prioritize prevention right from the start to make sure child abuse and neglect never occur.
