Throughout the month of April, we are partnering with individuals and communities across Tennessee who are committed to building strong families and making sure that children grow up feeling loved and valued. 


Take a moment to recognize the people who make a difference in the lives of children. We've made it super easy - check out our Pass The Pinwheel page for all the info.

At Prevent Child Abuse Tennessee, we believe it is everyone’s responsibility to ensure that children have the opportunity to grow up in a safe, healthy environment. Children deserve to feel loved and protected, and our annual Pinwheels for Prevention® campaign demonstrates our commitment to families in the communities where we work and live.

In coordination with National Child Abuse Prevention Month every April, communities, businesses, and organizations can participate in the Pinwheels for Prevention® campaign by planting Pinwheel Gardens, selling paper pinwheels, hosting community trainings, and many other activities. Involvement in the campaign encourages everyone who sees the pinwheel to become actively engaged in creating great childhoods for all children.
