A Letter from the Prevent Child Abuse Porter County

Prevent Child Abuse Porter County believes that education and awareness are the key to preventing child abuse, before the pain has been inflicted.  Our team of dedicated volunteers is making a difference in our community.

Our speakers bureau goes out into the community, free of charge, and educates on topics such as positive parenting techniques, sighs of child abuse and neglect, stress and anger management, and prevention of "Shaken Baby Syndrome".

This year as part of April National Child Abuse Awareness Month we are co-sponsoring internationally recognized speaker and author, Babara Coloroso.  Her topic "The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander" educates on breaking the cycle of violence in our homes and schools.

Also, as part of April Awareness we have distributed 9,500 blue ribbons throughout Porter County to health and social service agencies, City and County government, and police and fire departments.

If you wish to help us make a difference, please come to our next council meeting.  The next meeting will be on Tuesday April 27th, 6:30 PM, at the Mercantile Bank, 750 S. Washington St, Valparaiso.  Call 531-9012 if you have any questions or need further information.

Change is  possible because prevention works
