April is Child Abuse Prevention Month
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month (CAP Month). See our News & Events page for this year's CAP Month information, resources, and events.
And of course, the resources we have developed for previous years' CAP Month campaigns are still available online and will remain useful to you for years to come, and can be found under Resources > CAP Month Archive.
The Child Abuse Prevention Council (CAPC) of Santa Barbara County is a multi-agency network that coordinates efforts to prevent child abuse and neglect. We work to protect children, nurture families, and build community.
