FFS Employees Set Up Pinwheels for Child Abuse Prevention Month Campaign

Child abuse prevention

April was Child Abuse Prevention Month and recently Boys Town's Foster Family Services set up pinwheels to bring awareness to child abuse prevention.

In 2008, Prevent Child Abuse America (PCA) introduced the pinwheel as the new national symbol for child abuse prevention. Base on their research, a pinwheel implies whimsy and childlike notions and serves as a physical reminder of the great childhoods we want for all children.

This campaign is sponsored locally by the Nebraska Children and Families Foundation and blue pinwheels can be found all around the Omaha Metro area during the month of April. Foster Family Services employees worked hard to place 1,000 blue pinwheels on Boys Town's Home Campus last month as part of the campaign.

"We all have the duty to protect children and we believe in safe and nurturing environments for all children. Healthy families contribute to a healthy community."

Boys Town is very thankful for all of the Foster Family Services employees and all of the hard work they put in daily to provide a safe and healthy environment for children in the foster care system.​
