As most of you know, every year NJCA does an awareness campaign for Child Abuse Prevention Month (April), based off the original national SHINE campaign and focusing on different aspects of child abuse prevention, intervention, and response. This April’s theme is #ThoseWhoSHINE – featuring the state and local agencies and resources that support the well-being of children and families. 
As always, our main feature is the work of our CACs and key MDT partners. This year we will be creating a very special collective art piece that can be used as a symbol of the NJ child abuse response well beyond Child Abuse Prevention Month. To create this piece, we are asking for just a few minutes of your time to send us the following:

  1. A visual representation of your CAC. This can be your CAC logo, a photo of the facility or something special in it (a mural or other feature), or even a drawing by a child or staff member,
  2. Three words that best describe your CAC, your team, your work, how you serve children, etc. 

We would really appreciate having everyone’s contribution no later than Thursday, March 23rd. No need to overthink it, this should only take a few minutes to send, but we really need every county to participate! 

Please send your contribution to Debbie at debbie@njcainc.org and Olga @njcainc.org
