Child Abuse Prevention Month

Staff members from the Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) gather with the Lackawanna County Commissioners for a ceremonial proclamation that designated April as “Child Abuse Prevention Month.” The CAC has been the leader in combating child abuse, neglect and exploitation by providing specialized trauma therapy, education, law enforcement assistance and advocacy services. Last year, the Center provided help to over 1,000 youngsters.
