Mountain Xpress – March 31, 2017
The month of April is Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention month. In 2016, Buncombe County Health and Human Services (BCHHS) received over 4,820 reports of child abuse or neglect. Over 68% of the children found to be abused or neglected were under the age of six. To build a stronger future, it is critical that we all realize the role that we have in the prevention of child abuse and neglect.
