Working Together to Prevent Child Abuse
Each year, the state of North Carolina investigates thousands of allegations of child abuse and neglect. Locally, the Johnston County Child Protective Services investigates hundreds of those allegations. This April, for Child Abuse Prevention Month, the Johnston County Department of Social Services would like to urge the community to create a joint commitment to protecting our County’s youngest and most vulnerable.
An April 7th Bubble Dedication at the Department of Social Services will kick off Child Abuse Prevention Month. Members of the Department Social Services will blow bubbles to give honor to the victims and act as a visual reminder of just how many children have been victimized locally, as well as raise awareness for prevention. The ceremony will be held at the Johnston County Department Social Services, 806 North Street, Smithfield NC 27577 from 1-2pm.
Please come and join us in making a commitment to work together to aid in child abuse prevention for our community.
