March 22, 2018 | Press Release

April is Child Abuse Awareness Month. GO BLUE LUBBOCK, a community-wide project to promote child abuse awareness and prevention, will kick off on April 5th. Child abuse rates in Lubbock County are one of the highest in the state of Texas with an average of 3 children becoming confirmed victims of abuse and neglect every day.

Join with others in our community and commit to prevent child abuse by wearing blue (and telling people why) during the month of April. We can't change results without first educating people about the problem and then seeking solutions within our community.
