GO BLUE LUBBOCK Home | Calendar of Events | Child Abuse in Lubbock County
In conjunction with National Child Abuse Prevention Month in April, GO BLUE LUBBOCK is a community-wide effort to bring awareness to high rates of child abuse in our area and the need for prevention education. In Lubbock County, an average of 3 children per day become confirmed victims of abuse and neglect. Other victims exist but go unreported, 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Most of the children are age three and under.
In light of the COVID-19 outbreak in our community, child abuse prevention is even more important as parents and caregivers face added stress, anxiety, and instability - factors that contribute to child abuse and neglect. Your voice at this time is incredibly important to the children of Lubbock County.
