Idaho Falls, ID – April 4, 2023, Eastern Idaho Public Health will be hosting their Annual
Celebration of Children for Child Abuse Prevention Month event this on April 6, 2023 from
3:00pm-7:00pm at 1250 Hollipark Drive, Idaho Falls. This event will include BlockFest, an
interactive block exhibit that allows families to explore, play and learn with different types of
Blocks. Mayor Rebecca Casper will attend to declare April as Child Abuse Prevention Month in
the City of Idaho Falls and urge all residents to think about child abuse prevention and how
they can protect the children in their lives.

Eastern Idaho Public Health along with its partners for this event, Domestic Violence Sexual
Assault Center, Idaho Children’s Trust Fund and Idaho Falls Pediatrics recognizes that all
community members have a role in ensuring children have positive experiences and families
have the resources they need when they need them, well before they are in a crisis. The
theme of this year’s awareness and impact campaign that we lead in partnership with our
national network of state chapters, is “Building Together: Prevention in Partnership.”
Child abuse and neglect are preventable, and all communities benefit when children and
families are well supported.
