CASA Lake County Shines a Spotlight on Child Abuse Prevention

CASA Lake County, a leading advocacy organization for children who have been abused or neglected, stepped up efforts to raise awareness during April, which is recognized as Child Abuse Prevention Month nationwide.

Throughout the month, CASA Lake County launched a series of initiatives aimed at educating the community about the prevalence and impact of child abuse and neglect, as well as highlighting the critical role individuals can play in preventing and addressing these issues.

As part of their awareness campaign, CASA Lake County shared educational resources on social media platforms and collaborated with local partners to spread the message of child abuse prevention. These efforts were designed to engage the community in important conversations about child welfare and empower individuals to take action to protect children in need.

"Child Abuse Prevention Month is a crucial time for us to come together as a community to shine a light on the issue of child abuse and neglect," Executive Director of CASA Lake County Terri Greenberg said. "By raising awareness and providing education, we can work towards ensuring every child has a safe and nurturing environment to grow and thrive."

CASA Lake County encourages community members to get involved by learning about the signs of child abuse and neglect, becoming a CASA volunteer or donating. For more information, visit their website at or follow them on social media on Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

CASA Lake County is a nonprofit organization that recruits, trains and supports volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the Lake County court system. By providing a voice for these children, CASA volunteers help ensure they are placed in safe, permanent homes where they can thrive.
