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. Resilience delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the new movement to treat and prevent Toxic Stress.

As part of CARE House’s celebration of 40 years of services, we’d like to share 40 easy ways for you to get involved and help child victims of abuse in Oakland County. Click here to see all the posts in the series!

33./34. Fund an Early Head Start play group/Fund a Parent Café – Our Early Head Start program largely consists of home visitations for low-income families with infants and toddlers, but each month we hold play groups to develop socialization skills in the young ones.

25. Set up a Caring 4 Kids training – Caring 4 Kids is a free training seminar designed to teach the layperson the facts of child abuse and neglect; how often it occurs, what the consequences are, how to recognize the signs, and how to report suspicions. To schedule a training session, (or a more in-depth 3 hour Stewards of Children session), visit the Prevention section of our website.

26. Give proceeds from a Casual Day office program to CARE House – An easy way to give back is to create a Casual Day program.
