We Wear Blue to Work to Support Child Abuse Prevention Month

Northwoodians proudly joined children services agencies and businesses across Ohio on April 9, 2014, to support child abuse prevention by participating in Wear Blue, the statewide awareness campaign that takes place on the second Wednesday of every April, Child Abuse Prevention Month. Ohioans are encouraged to wear blue that day - to work, to school, to a community event - to show support for preventing child abuse and neglect.

Visit to see photos of the hundreds of the supporters and learn more about the Wear Blue campaign, which is sponsored by the Public Children Services Association of Ohio.


Participating in the Wear Blue campaign is one small way for all of us to show support, but protective agencies and organizations across the country need help from everyone to help keep kids safe.

Here are just a few examples of programs that encourage community involvement in the mission to protect children and strengthen families.
