This past Friday, April 5, the staff at Orleans County Department of Social Services (DSS) wore blue on in honor of Go Blue Day, which begins Child Abuse Prevention Month. Go Blue Day is always celebrated on the first Friday in April

“April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and serves as a reminder for our community to come together to support, strengthen and celebrate families,” said Cyndi Stumer, Deputy Commissioner of DSS.

If you have suspicions of child abuse or neglect to report or you are concerned about the health or safety of a child, please immediately call the NYS Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-342-3720.  Orleans County DSS receives about 600 referrals for investigation annually through state Child Protective Services.
