Planting Pinwheels for Child Abuse Prevention Month


Every April since 2007, Hancock County has been “planting” pinwheels on the Courthouse lawn as part of the Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign. April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and the pinwheels are a visual reminder that child abuse and neglect occur in Hancock County. You can help by reporting suspected abuse or neglect, becoming a foster or adoptive parent and volunteering in organizations that support children and teens.

To make a report, Monday through Friday between 8am-4:30pm, call 419-424-7022 and ask for a children services intake worker. For after hours emergencies, call 419-422-2424 and ask for a Children Services Worker to be paged.
