(September 21, 2012 – Prescott-Russell) October is Child Abuse Prevention Month in Ontario and Valoris for Children and Adults of Prescott-Russell is taking this opportunity to highlight the importance of community involvement in providing quality services aimed at protecting youth and insuring their safety. “It takes a village to raise a child” and we feel the same approach applies to prevention of child abuse and neglect. It is a reminder that we, the members of the community, are all responsible for the safety and well- being of children. We encourage the citizens of Prescott-Russell to take the time to get informed and to learn more about child abuse as it is a reality that touches far too many children. The Ontario Association of Children’s Aid Societies states that approximately 47% of Ontarians know someone who was exposed to or is the victim of child abuse or neglect. We hope that by learning about child abuse and neglect, community members will be more aware of this social problem and that together, we can succeed at preventing cases and at protecting a greater number of children who are at risk. Let it be known that signs of child abuse and neglect are often times very subtle and undetectable. We wish to remind the community that all Ontarians have an obligation to directly and promptly contact their local child welfare agency when they suspect a child is a victim or at risk of child abuse and neglect. We also wish to remind the community that once they report possible child abuse and neglect, it is the local child welfare agency’s responsibility and mandate to determine if a child is being abused or neglected. In support of Child Abuse Prevention Month, we have designated October 18, 2012 as Purple Day . As a sign of solidarity for the prevention of child abuse and neglect, we encourage all citizens of Prescott-Russell and local businesses to wear purple clothing and accessories. We also encourage you to take photos of your creative initiatives and to share them with us! All schools in Prescott-Russell will be invited to participate and some have also accepted to create human purple ribbons. Please join us! For more information about Purple Day , please contact Nathalie Carrière, supervisor at Valoris for children and adults of Prescott-Russell at 1 800 675-6168, ext. 2270 or . To learn more about child abuse and neglect, please visit . If you have concerns regarding a child that you suspect is at risk of becoming or is a victim of child abuse and neglect, please contact us immediately at 1 800 675-6168.
