‘Pinwheels for Prevention’ raises awareness

In recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month, the Clermont County Department of Job and Family Services has teamed up with four local churches to increase the county residents’ awareness of child abuse in the county.

St. Thomas Moore Catholic Church, Union Township, Eastside Christian Church, Milford, Mt. Carmel Christian Church, and Bethel United Methodist Church have teamed up with the DJFS to display bruise colored Pinwheels For Prevention to make the residents more aware of the prevalence of child abuse in the county and what they can do to prevent it.

“We’re very appreciative and excited about our partnership with the faith community,” Clermont Children’s Protective Services Director Tim Dick said. “We’re trying to reach out more in the faith community. We can work well together to protect the most vulnerable members of our society, the ones that need care the most, our children.”
