Coconino Coalition for Children and Youth (CCC&Y) would like to announce that April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. In recognition, CCC&Y, along with other child and youth organizations in Coconino county, are hosting community wide events and trainings for providers and families. The list of activities has been provided below, along with a link to each of the activities. We would like to send out a VERY special THANK YOU!!! to the sponsors of CCC&Y’s Annual Child Abuse Prevention Activities. Without their support, many of these important activities to spread training, education and awareness on the impact of child abuse, neglect and maltreatment would not be possible. THANK YOU so much for your support and your dedication to children and youth in northern Arizona.
