    During April, in communities throughout the United States, pinwheels are being planted in front of courthouses, playgrounds, libraries and parks.

    Each pinwheel represents a case of child abuse and neglect reported to a public children’s services agency in the past year.
  •  
    For Cuyahoga County that means 16,461 pinwheels; one for each time that someone cared enough to call for help and protect a child at risk of abuse or neglect.
  •  
    The pinwheels will be on display April 1-30 at Tower City Center to coincide with National Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention month.

    As the Cuyahoga County Pinwheels for Prevention host, Providence House, Ohio’s first licensed crisis nursery, in partnership with Tower City Center, has filled the railings of Tower City with a dramatic display of blue symbols of hope, awareness and prevention.
