ONSLOW COUNTY PARTNERSHIP FOR CHILDREN

In Onslow County each year, more than 3000 reports of child abuse and neglect are made to Child Protective Services. Onslow County continues to experience a high rate of child abuse and neglect, the very reason why the Child Advocacy Center was established to evaluate these young victims and to start the healing process. In order to increase public awareness and community education, our goal is to plant pinwheel gardens at all public schools and licensed childcare centers in Onslow County. You can help us by sponsoring a Pinwheel Garden for $40.00. Please click on the link below and help us raise awareness in our community!
