Last year, more than 250 children from Yolo County were placed in child-welfare supervised locations. The Children’s Alliance is actively addressing issues that lead to these tragedies by providing child abuse prevention programs and educating the community about the many resources available for prevention and treatment.

The fashion show on April 26 in West Sacramento and the Child Abuse Fun Run on April 28 in Davis will complete many activities take place during April in recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Month.
