DCYF's Strengthening Families team is preparing to observe Child Abuse Prevention Month this April by raising awareness in communities about child abuse and neglect prevention.

As the Prevent Child Abuse Washington State Chapter, we encourage you to join the Pinwheels for Prevention initiative. This initiative uses pinwheels – a timeless symbol for childhood – to represent its campaign.

Last year, we distributed around 15,000 pinwheels to communities around the state. Pinwheels for Prevention is a reminder that it is not enough to respond to child abuse and neglect – we must build and support strong families through community engagement, programs, and policies. This movement works toward developing communities that are healthy, safe, and nurturing for all children and all families.

Order pinwheels today! Please share this information with your child abuse and neglect prevention partners across the state. Pinwheels can be ordered using the form found here. Pinwheels are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you have any questions, please email
