    April 2018 · Uncategorized

    If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you know someone with autism. Perhaps, that someone is a member of your own family. Since April is Autism Awareness Month, we thought we we’d take a moment to … well, raise awareness.


    Whatever you do, don’t look the other way

    Every April, we’re reminded that hundreds of thousands of children suffer abuse or neglect each year in the United States. The purpose of National Child Abuse Prevention Month is to raise awareness about the causes and conditions that contribute to an abusive relationship between caregivers and children. It’s also an opportunity to educate ourselves about how to identify and hopefully prevent abuse or neglect when we come across it.

    You might be seeing lots of blue today as Saint Francis staff and many of our community friends and partners dress to raise awareness about child abuse prevention. This month marks the 35th anniversary of the first Child Abuse Prevention Month, and today is Wear Blue Day, just one of the ways we try to shed light on the many every day actions we can all take to help prevent child abuse.
