What is Paint Our Town Blue?  
 
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.  Paint Our Town Blue is Genesee County's  public awareness campaign promoting the prevention of child abuse and neglect in in our community through education and increased attention to this epidemic. This movement is a collaboration of Genesee County nonprofits, community leaders,  business, and residents with an aim to raise attention to its prevalence and the long term impacts in has on child development, as well as social and economic conditions in our whole community.  The majority of child abuse cases stems from circumstances and conditions that can be preventable when community programs and systems are available. By promoting safety, awareness and dialogue, we can prevent abuse from happening in the first place and help keep our children safe.
