Tune-In Alert: April is Child Abuse Prevention Month
Listen to 1010 WINS (AM) throughout the month of April as the radio station airs a public service announcement to help raise awareness for Child Abuse Prevention Month and to promote JCCA’s Child Abuse Alert booklet. If you suspect that a child is being abused and you don’t know what to do, JCCA has an excellent resource for you: Child Abuse Alert, a free 16-page booklet, designed to help you recognize some of the signs that a child is at risk and to give you the confidence to act. You can request booklets for yourself or your organization on our website or by calling 212-425-3333. You can also download it here. It is available in English, Spanish, and Russian.

Sunday, May 17, 2009 9:30-11:00 AM (rain or shine!)
The 2nd Annual WALK for The Cottage Schools raises funds and offers hope to our foster care youth at The Cottage Schools, Pleasantville & Edenwald, the residential treatment programs of Jewish Child Care Association. These programs provide a safe, structured environment for troubled young people while they work to resolve their difficulties and return to their own communities.
Please join us for WALK for The Cottage Schools on Sunday, May 17, 9:30-11:00 AM (rain or shine!) on the campus at 1075 Broadway, Pleasantville, NY.
There is a $1.5 million gap between government funding and necessary expenses. This is why we need your help. Every dollar raised will go directly into programs that give help and hope to these young people.
Last year, more than 350 teens, campus residents, parents, and seniors participated in our first-ever WALK for the Cottage Schools. Please help us increase that number and raise a dollar for every step taken in 2009.
