April is Child Abuse Awareness Month

Dixon Family Services has a banner in front of the building during the month of April as one way to remind people that April is Child Abuse Awareness Month. 

The organization reminds us that as a community we have a responsibility to nurture and protect our children and help ensure they become healthy and productive adults.

Studies show that there is a direct link between child abuse and a greater risk later in life of depression, alcoholism, drug abuse, smoking, eating disorders, obesity, sexual promiscuity, certain chronic diseases and suicide.

Dixon Family Services (DFS) is a community-based Family Resource Center and Counseling Center and does all it can to help ensure the safety and well-being of Dixon’s children all year long.  With a special focus on low-income families with children, a priority goal is to reduce the incidences of child abuse or neglect by decreasing the worries and stress parents increasingly face on a daily basis.
