In 2008, Prevent Child Abuse America introduced the pinwheel as the new national symbol for child abuse prevention through Pinwheels for Prevention. What our research showed, and what our experiences since than have borne out, is that people respond to the pinwheel. By it's very nature, the pinwheel connotes whimsy and childlike notions. In essence, it has come to serve as the physical embodiment, or reminder, of the great childhoods we want for all children.

The CARE Center of Indiana County
Every year, the Care Center of Indiana County hosts the Pinwheels for Prevention event to raise awareness for child abuse.
Throughout April, celebrate the lives you touch and those who have touched yours by honoring them with a pinwheel – the national symbol for the great childhoods all children deserve because our children are our future.
