Child Abuse Prevention Month was a huge success!

Thank you to everyone who made April so special. Here at Illuminate, we are inspired by Colorado’s commitment to strengthening families and ensuring all children grow up healthy and thriving.

Join us as we look back on all of the amazing people, events, and progress that made 2024’s Child Abuse Prevention Month great!

We started off the month at the Colorado State Capitol for Pinwheels in the Chambers.

As the Child Abuse Prevention Month tribute was read on the Senate floor by five legislators, we filled the galleries with pinwheels to show our support for family strengthening policies in Colorado and beyond.

April 5th was Wear Blue Day!

Illuminate Colorado staff from across the state showed their commitment to building brighter childhoods by wearing blue and a smile.

At the 2024 Pinwheel Breakfast, we celebrated outstanding leaders in prevention by presenting six Leadership Awards.

We raised money to support families and prevent child maltreatment in Colorado!

On April 27th, we teamed up with Little Man Ice Cream to raise money for family strengthening programs. Guests chatted with Illuminate staff about our work, participated in fun giveaways, and 15% of the proceeds from the afternoon were donated to Illuminate!

Throughout the month of April, and largely due to our first ever National Day of Giving, we were able to raise over $18,200 to support our mission of preventing child maltreatment! We couldn’t have done it without the help of our generous supporters, so thank you!

That’s a wrap!

Thank you for joining us for yet another inspiring and energizing Child Abuse Prevention Month.

While Child Abuse Prevention Month may be over, our mission is far from complete. Preventing child maltreatment is an ongoing effort that requires the continued support of dedicated individuals like you.
