On April 4th, the Colorado Department of Human Services hosted a kick-off event for National Child Abuse Prevention Month! DCAC and various other organizations and agencies who combat and prevent child abuse and neglect in Colorado were invited to gather at the Colorado State Capitol for a rally event that would kick off Child Abuse Prevention Month. The event included several speakers, including Donna Lynne, Lieutenant Governor, and Reggie Bicha, executive director of the Colorado Department of Human Services. We had a wonderful time learning about what Colorado is doing to prevent child abuse and neglect and it was so inspiring to see how many great organizations are taking a stand against child abuse and neglect to make a change in our community.
Thank you again to our Child Abuse Prevention Month sponsor, SM Energy!
