Wear Blue Day - Child Abuse Prevention Month 2023
Friday, March 31, 2023
Carteret County Department of Social Services will observe Friday, March 31, as Wear Blue Day 2023.
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, a time for communities to come together to build caring connections, supportive environments, and positive experiences for all children. Child maltreatment is a preventable problem. All adults and community partners play a role in building the safe, stable, nurturing homes and environments needed for the healthy development of our future generation of parents, leaders, and community members. North Carolina’s future prosperity depends on it.
Join Carteret County DSS on Friday, March 31, 2023, by wearing blue to raise awareness. Please take pictures wearing blue and post on social media using #CarteretWearsBlue2023 to help raise awareness of this national problem.
