April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month
A month dedicated to raising awareness to the issue and prevention of child abuse
River Bridge Regional Center is dedicated to the prevention and treatment of child abuse and provide for children’s physical, emotional, and developmental needs. During April and throughout the year, we hope to engage our community through dialogue and action to keep our children safe. RBRC exists to break the silence, expose the secrecy that binds child abuse, and give child victims their voice and strength back. Together we can make a positive impact and be the change in the lives of children.
Saturday April 3rd, 2021, River Bridge and CASA of the 9th planted pinwheels in remembrance of all the children we served in 2020. Over 300 Jane and John Doe names were read in acknowledgement of these children. Stop by the Garfield County Courthouse Veterans Memorial and Paepke Park in Aspen to honor all the children.
Let us show these children we stand by them, believe them, and will work to ensure that they can reclaim their voice and strength to live out their best life!
Thank You to all those who support River Bridge and our Pinwheel Gardens!
