April: Child Abuse Prevention Month

Stand up for children during Child Abuse Prevention Month. Each April, we work businesses and community members to plant pinwheel gardens across New Jersey. Planted as a beacon of hope for all children, the pinwheel represents the nurturing care and support Acenda provide at-risk children and families. To host a pinwheel garden at your business or organization, please contact development@acendahealth.org.
