This April, you are invited to ‘Go Blue’ and help prevent child abuse and spread awareness for Autism.
With the month dedicated to both of these causes treated and served by The Howard Phillips Center for Children & Families, more people in Central Florida need to be educated about these subjects that affect our community.
Did you know that most victims of child abuse know their abusers, or that boys are four times more likely to have Autism than girls? How about that early detection and intervention helps both child abuse victims and children diagnosed with Autism?
To help The Howard Phillips Center reach more children and families affected by child abuse and Autism, make a secure online donation at: Give.OrlandoHealth.com/HPC.
