Child Abuse Awareness


April is Child Abuse Awareness Month.

On Monday, Vigo County CASA, the Department of Child Services and the Children’s Bureau gathered in front of the Vigo County Courthouse.

They put pinwheels on display and hung a banner for people to see.

They’ll be raising awareness with events throughout the month, including an Indiana Kids Fun Day at the YMCA on April 22 and April 28.

“It’s for all the children to come out and spread awareness. There’s going to be a lot of community partners, vendors and free giveaways,” says Norma Almazan with Vigo County CASA.

The organizations also encourage people to considering becoming a CASA volunteer (Court Appointed Special Advocate) or a foster parent.

According to Vigo County CASA’s Facebook page, the organizations will hand out information on April 7, 13, and 21 from 11 A.M. to 1 P.M. at Fresh Thyme, Big Lots and Baeslers.
