We're working in communities all across Tennessee to bring parents, community leaders, businesses, and organizations together in support of building stronger families and safe, loving homes for children to grow up in. Plant a pinwheel garden, attend one of our special events, or organize your own fundraiser! All are great ways to show YOUR commitment to the well-being of children!

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.
