April is nationally recognized as Child abuse Prevention Month. The Pinwheels for Prevention campaign uses a simple child’s toy to remind us that we all play an important role in children’s lives.

Join us throughout April for Pinwheels for Prevention and be part of the Family Education & Support Service’s campaign to plant Pinwheels of Hope and grow a better tomorrow for children in Washington. Pinwheels of Hope Partners showcase the value of prevention by planting pinwheel gardens and sharing prevention messages with their community.

Family Education & Support Services will be hosting a special Community Pinwheels of Hope Garden in Lewis, Mason and Thurston Counties from April 23 to May 1, 2021. Help us plant the seeds of a better tomorrow for children and families in Washington.
