CAAM bue Wednesday campaign 

April is Child Abuse Awareness Month and ACS knows a strong Family starts with a strong community.  We invite community leaders, Soldiers, spouses, children, and Department of the Army Civilians to wear something blue every Wednesday during the month of April to support this endeavor.  Children required constant care, attention and with our communities backing, we can bring visibility to child abuse or neglect.  Please email photos of you wearing blue to  chester.f.bradley2.civ@mail.mil.  

 

National Child Abuse Awareness Month 

In 1983, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed April to be the first National Child Abuse Prevention Month. In 1989, the Blue Ribbon Campaign was started to memorialize children who have been affected by abuse or neglect. The blue ribbon is widely recognized as a national symbol of child abuse prevention.  Starting in April, look for the Family Advocacy Program workshops, seminars, and information table to better assist our community.  This year’s theme is “Strong communities strengthen families.”  For more details, call 912 767-2882.

This event is in conjunction with National Child Abuse Awareness Month to bring awareness of the resources available to our military Families and the community.  We will not tolerate abuse or neglect and we will promote strong nurturing communities.   For more information how you can help, call ACS at 912 767-2882.  

 

Baby boot camp for dads

According to a recent survey, 86 percent of dads spend more time with their children today than their own fathers did with them. However, 7 out of 10 also reported that they could use tips on how to be a better parent. The smallest moments can have the biggest impact on a child’s life. Take time to be a dad today.  For more information call the Family Advocacy Program at 912 767-2882 and speak with our New Parent Support Program staff.
