Child Abuse Prevention in Frederick County, Maryland


April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. 

April 1, 2022 is Wear Blue Friday. Demonstrate your support for a happy healthy childhood for children by wearing blue.  

Join us in raising awareness of child abuse and increase the preventio‚Äčn of maltreatment.

Frederick Social is sponsoring the Friends of the CAC for the month of April by donating a portion of their proceeds from their "charity tap" of beer. They are located at 50 Citizens Way, Frederick.

A Facebook Live drawing will be held Saturday, April 9, 2022 to those who posted a selfie of them wearing blue and demonstrating their support.  Below is a photo of the winners - the Bender family.

Many thanks to the Frederick County Fraternal Order of Police 102 for choosing us as a recipient of the proceeds from their annual golf tournament held in the fall last year. Here is DFC Nick Constantine presenting the check to Pat Bradshaw and Janet Whitcomb from the Friends of the CAC.
