Child Abuse Prevention Month – Board of Supervisors Resolution & Children’s Bill of Rights

April 17, 2017

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Thanks to the Nevada County Board of Supervisors for the resolution approved on March 28 proclaiming April 2017 as Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Month in Nevada County and urging “all citizens to recognize this month by dedicating ourselves to the task of improving the quality of life for all children and families.”
