Blue April - Child Abuse Prevention Month

Some of our past participants...

Wear Blue to Change Lives

In April, employees across our community wear BLUE  in recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month.  Wonderful employees like you are committed to raise funds and increase awareness in support of  Families First of Palm Beach County’s vital work to prevent child abuse.

You can make a DIFFERENCE in our community

WHAT IS BLUE APRIL?

Families First created the “Blue April” project as a collaborative effort to recognize National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The goal is to remind the entire community of the role we all play in creating safe, and healthy futures for our community’s children. Participants donate $5 or more in support of Families First programs that have been preventing child abuse in thousands of families for 33 years.

WHY SHOULD MY COMPANY GET INVOLVED?

Child abuse prevention requires community partnerships and this project provides a unique, fun, and inexpensive way to do just that. It also creates an environment of purpose and teamwork within your school, business, sorority, fraternity and Church. Individuals and families can participate, too.

Appoint a team captain to collect donations and distribute the information Families First will provide about “Blue April.” Families First will publicize the participating companies on our website and social media. When employees donate $5 or more, they receive a bracelet for their support.

Additionally, we encourage all participants to fundraise for the entire month of April and then wear blue on Friday, April 26th, to show a unified community effort to build awareness for this cause.

WHAT IS FAMILIES FIRST OF PALM BEACH COUNTY?

Families First has successfully been preventing child abuse for 35 years by providing needed services to families whose life circumstances leave them ill-equipped to provide safe and loving homes for their children.

By providing services in the areas of child abuse prevention, housing, health and behavioral health, families become stable and self-sufficient. For every child protected from abuse, the community saves $105,000 in future costs of hospitalization, special education, juvenile justice and school failure – all aftermaths of abuse.
