In commemoration of Child Abuse Prevention month, the Warren Washington C.A.R.E. Center along with members of its Multidisciplinary Team planted a pinwheel garden on the C.A.R.E. Center’s front porch on Dix Avenue in Glens Falls. Pinwheels have long been a symbol of childhood happiness and have grown nationally to represent the movement to prevent child abuse in America.
Over the course of 1 week, our team turned our porch into a thriving pinwheel garden with over 300 pinwheels planted. On average, the C.A.R.E. Center serves 300 children impacted by abuse and maltreatment annually, each pinwheel planted represents one of these children.
It is our hope that our pinwheel garden acts as a visual display of support and solidarity from our team to all of those children and families impacted by child abuse in our community.
