Each day is an opportunity to build the foundation for our future. We all have a role to play as healthy partners in our communities. But building healthy communities takes work. That's why we all have a responsibility to ensure children have positive experiences, and to help families have the resources they need, when they need them. It’s more important than ever to build positive childhood experiences together in our communities and across Virginia!

Why Pinwheels?

Families Forward Virginia highlights the blue pinwheel as the nationally recognized symbol for child abuse prevention because it represents the whimsy of childhood, the great childhoods all children deserve and the prevention efforts that help them happen. Today it inspires all of us to play a role in providing the best possible environment for every child to flourish and thrive.
