The Jackson County Board of Supervisors proclaimed the month of April as Child Abuse Prevention Month during their April 2, 2012 board meeting.  Representatives from Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) attended the meeting to accept the proclamation and hand out blue ribbons as a reminder of the 3.2 million abused children reported nationally each year to Child Protective Services. 

There are currently more than 350 children in foster care in Jackson County due to child abuse or neglect, and each year more than 2,000 child abuse cases are reported or investigated in the County. 

For more information about CASA’s services or to find out how to become an advocate for children, visit CASA’s website at www.jccasa.net

Child Abuse Prevention Month was first proclaimed by the United States Congress in April 1983.
