April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and we’re doing our part to share the Prevention message throughout Oakland County. Here’s a calendar of events for CAP Month activities at CARE House:

  • Monday, April 9 – Free Resilience film screening – There will be a screening of the new film, Resilience, taking place at Oakland Schools on the evening of Monday, April 9 from 6-8pm.
