The KC Child Abuse Prevention Month Planning Committee is preparing for April and each child focused agency in the metro area is asked to provide information about special events/activities/trainings that are being planned for April, National Child Abuse Prevention Month 2017.  This information will be included in the ½-page ad that The Kansas City Star donates to our cause each April.  This is a huge donation by The Star and we are most grateful, so please get your events planned and submit your information on this simple Survey Monkey form below.  This special ad will be published in the paper on Saturday, March 25, 2017.  Many thanks to Sarah Watts at MOCSA for updating the survey form for us, and to Kristin Mills-Trowbridge, also with MOCSA, for compiling and submitting it to the Star.

We need your information by Friday – March 10, so please finalize your agency’s plans for April and complete the Survey Monkey form HERE.

Here is last year’s calendar as an example:
