Nationally, pinwheels are a symbol of child abuse prevention as they conjure up the idea of a happy and carefree childhood - something that every child deserves.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. We need your help to raise awareness and plant our pinwheel garden at the Rock County Courthouse. The 3000 pinwheels we plant are not a symbol of what could have been a happy childhood, but what could still be a happy childhood for the children who have experienced abuse or neglect.

We hope you can join us, rain or shine!


Thank you Home Depot (Madison, Janesville, and Rockford locations) for helping provide the necessary tools and equipment to make planting the pinwheels and putting up Blue Kiddo silhouettes around the community possible.

Last year, we were able to resume our annual Pinwheels for Prevention event and the weather couldn't have been better! In addition to the planting of 3,000 pinwheels at the courthouse, blue kiddos were planted throughout the community to remind our community that April is Child Abuse Prevention month symbolizing the importance of communities working together to create safe kids, strong families and a thriving community.
