At the Rapides Children’s Advocacy Center, our mission is to help heal and champion abused and neglect children throughout Central Louisiana. Now is the time for you to get involved by doing something in honor of April as National Child Abuse Awareness Month. We have many chances for you to get involved this month to support abused and neglected children in our community. Take a look at the upcoming events:

April 4th is the Walker Automotive fishing tournament at Kincaid Lake in honor of Child Abuse Awareness Month.

April 5th is ‘Go Blue for Kids’ Day at all Avoyelles and Rapides Parish Schools, where children may wear the color blue to help raise awareness.
