Blue Ribbon Month
April was first declared Child Abuse Prevention Month by presidential proclamation in 1983. Since then, April has been a time to acknowledge the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child abuse.
Cope Family Center along with The Child Abuse Prevention Council of Napa County will host several events throughout the month of April to bring awareness to the Napa community. In early April we will be hosting Dr. Bonny Forrest with a presentation on "What Are Kids Our Worth" at Napa Valley College Performing Arts Center.
We will also honor those who have been instrumental in child abuse prevention in Napa County at our Blue Ribbon Campaign Kick-Off at Cope Family Center. Other various outreach and fundraising events take place during the month.
There are many agencies in our county that work to protect children and support families. Through The Child Abuse Prevention Council at Cope Family Center, these organizations collaborate to educate the community and provide programs and services that have lasting, positive impacts.
