April is National

Child Abuse Prevention Month

In recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month and with generous support from the Bill and Rosemary Gallagher Foundation, Watson Children’s Shelter presents, “The Face Behind the Mask” art show. This unique exhibit will feature artistic works from children impacted by abuse and neglect right here in Montana. In partnership with Carolyn Maier from the Bill and Rosemary Gallagher Foundation and local artist Stoney Sasser, the children endeavored to tell their stories of resiliency through their art.

To view this exhibit, join us on April 7, from 5-7pm, in the lobby of the Florence Building outside the Red Bird Wine Bar.

In recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month, throughout April, we are getting the word out about the importance of prevention, how to recognize abuse and neglect, the impact of abuse and neglect, and what you can do to help prevent it or make a report.

We hope you will join us in driving home this important message.

Each week we will address key components surrounding child abuse prevention.

• Week one: The growing need for prevention
• Week two: Recognizing the signs of abuse and neglect
• Week three: Short and long term impacts of child abuse and neglect
• Week four: What you can do to help prevent abuse and neglect
