Child Abuse Prevention Toolkits
2023 Child Abuse Prevention Toolkit - Available Now!
Building Together: Prevention in Partnership is this year’s prevention theme for Child Abuse Prevention Month in Virginia. It highlights that we all have a role in disrupting the cycles of child abuse, neglect and poverty by strengthening Virginia’s families and communities.
This year’s toolkit includes resources on:
How home visiting helps
Facts on Opioid overdoses
Using a trauma-informed approach
Tips on preventing youth bullying, including cyberbullying
How to talk with and help youth who may identify as LGBTQ
This year’s packet is now digital to make it easier for you to grab and share what you want, when you want. We’ve also developed a series of social media posts that you can use for Child Abuse Prevention Month and throughout the year to reinforce #GreatChildhoods and #GreatChildhoodsVA! Just be sure to tag @FamiliesForwardVirginia on Facebook, @FamiliesForwardVa on Instagram and @Families4wardVa on Twitter so we can share your posts too!
Funding for developing our child abuse prevention toolkit was provided by the Virginia Department of Social Services with a Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention Grant from the Office on Child Abuse and Neglect, Administration on Children, Youth and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
