StepStone Family & Youth Services Raises Awareness of National Child Abuse Prevention Month

Child Abuse Prevention MonthThis April, in recognition of National Child Abuse Prevention Month, StepStone Family & Youth Services is participating in the Pinwheels for Prevention campaign. Through this initiative, StepStone hopes to raise awareness about preventing child abuse and neglect and providing children with a safe, loving home.

StepStone Family and Youth Services helps connect children in need with foster families who can provide comforting, nurturing homes. The organization serves communities across the country and provides foster care services, counseling, respite care, training for foster parents and youth residential services. StepStone is always looking for new foster families to help children who need safe, caring living environments in the communities they serve.
