Since January 1, 2015 we have forensically interviewed over 1,000 children who were potential victims of sexual or severe physical abuse. April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Each year, we make a pinwheel garden for each child we have seen so far in the year. The handprints in each garden were made by the children who were interviewed at our center. We place our gardens in various businesses in Montcalm and Ionia County. The pinwheel has come to serve as a reminder of the great childhoods we want for all children. If you would like to help us prevent child abuse and place a pinwheel garden in your office, please contact us if you would like to host and sponsor a child's basket.
No Shave November comes every year, and the law enforcement officers in Ionia and Montcalm Counties use this as an opportunity to support the children even more than they already do every day at the CAC.
