Since the enaction of the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act in 1974, several programs and initiatives have been coordinated by the Department of Health and Human Services.

One of those implementations was to recognize the month of April as Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA, is the 20th Judicial District’s group for children in the “child welfare maze,” who are often alone in the process of prosecuting their parents or guardians and are unable to live safely at home, their Web site says.



By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.
