LANCASTER – April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and we all need to do our part to make sure that children are safe and cared for. Widespread social distancing means the risk of child abuse and neglect increases. Be watchful and aware of the children in your community. If you have concerns that a child is not safe or being cared for – taking action could save a child’s life. Child abuse can be reported 24/7 at the toll-free Childline number: 1-800-932-0313.
