About This Activity

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The Partnership for Safe Families & Communities of Ventura County, The Child Abuse Prevention Council (The Partnership) and our Prevention Task Forces are hosting our second annual 5K fundraiser to promote awareness of child abuse and neglect and prevention efforts.

The Partnership is the Child Abuse, Family and Community Violence Prevention Council for Ventura County. Our Mission is "to promote a community committed to safe, healthy, peaceful families". On behalf of The Partnership, I would like to ask for your support towards our 5K fundraiser, "Stronger Families, Safer Kids" being held on Saturday April 30, 2016.

The Partnership and our members recognize the impact that child abuse and neglect has on families. Child abuse and neglect can have enduring physical, intellectual, and psychological repercussions into adolescence and adulthood. All types of child abuse and neglect have long lasting effects throughout life, damaging a child's sense of self, ability to have healthy relationships, and ability to function at home, at work, and at school. In Ventura County, Children and Family Services receives over 10,000 calls for suspected child abuse and neglect each year. And as of July 2015, there were 819 children in foster care.

Your support of this event will help to raise awareness in Ventura County about how we can all work together to strengthen families and protect our children.

Thank you in advance for your support and dedication to the residents of Ventura County.
