Through the collaborative efforts of the Governor’s Office of Adoption and Child Protection, the Florida Department of Children and Families, and the Ounce of Prevention Fund of Florida, we are raising awareness to end child abuse in Florida.  April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.  Florida’s Pinwheels for Prevention® campaign is part of a national movement led by Prevent Child Abuse America to change the way we think about prevention.  The campaign symbol, a blue and silver pinwheel, is a reminder of the happy childhoods and bright futures that all children deserve, as well as the important role we each play to ensure every child has an equal opportunity for healthy growth and development.
