April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

4 Apr 2018

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month: 'Strong Communities Strengthen Families'.

Long deployments, frequent moves, and the demands of mission readiness impose many stresses on military families, which sometimes leads to dating, marital and/or parent-child conflict. Concern for the welfare of Navy families and the effects of family violence on military performance prompted the establishment of the Family Advocacy Program.

Fleet & Family Support Centers offer prevention, identification, treatment and follow up regarding incidents of Family Violence. All efforts are geared towards victim safety and protection, and offender accountability, education and treatment. Our goal is to help you and your family, so please do not hesitate to ask questions and receive support for you as an individual or as a family.

Here is a list of activities that our Fleet & Family Support Center Family Advocacy Program will support through outreach for Child Abuse Prevention Month.
