Join us as we observe Child Abuse Prevention month in April to raise awareness in communities about child abuse and neglect prevention. 

As the Prevent Child Abuse Washington State Chapter, we encourage you to join the Pinwheels for Prevention initiative. This initiative uses pinwheels – a timeless symbol for childhood – to represent its campaign. 

Last year, DCYF distributed nearly 10,000 pinwheels to communities around the state. Pinwheels for Prevention is a reminder that it is not enough to respond to child abuse and neglect – we must build and support strong families through community engagement, programs and policies. This movement works toward developing communities that are healthy, safe and nurturing for all children and all families.

Please place your order for pinwheels through Pinwheels are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Pinwheels will be available for delivery in late March.
