Child Enrichment Inc. will observe National Child Abuse Prevention Month with a Child Abuse Prevention Month Kick-off Event on April 1, 2019 from 5:00 PM-6:30 PM at the Augusta Convention and Visitors Bureau. Guest speakers will include Mayor Hardie Davis Jr., Judge Amanda Heath, and District Attorney Natalie Paine. The event will also feature a premier of Child Enrichment Inc.’s new agency video that depicts a fictional story of a child receiving services from Child Enrichment.
This month and throughout the year, Child Enrichment encourages all individuals and organizations to play a role in making the CSRA a better place for children and families. By ensuring that parents have the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to care for their children, we can help prevent child abuse and neglect by creating strong and thriving children, youth, and families. The staff of Child Enrichment are available to make free child abuse prevention presentations to adults and youth in the CRSA. To schedule a presentation, contact Child Enrichment at 706-737-4631.
