April is Child Abuse Awareness Month

Dixon Family Services has a banner out in our front yard, we will receive a proclamation from Dixon City Council on April 11, the Solano County Board of Supervisors recognized it (Child Abuse Awareness) on April 4 and there are numerous events around our county highlighting the issue this month.  We (Dixon Family Services) have several new documents linked to our website from Solano County Children’s Alliance and the Greater Bay Area Child Abuse Prevention Council Coalition and we encourage you to read them.  Go to www.dixonfamilyservices.org

A very important point to make about this terrible issue is that Child Abuse, in its many forms, happens every day and has major negative impacts on the futures of those children.
