Standing Up For Portsmouth Children & Youth

Since 2012, we’ve planted the Portsmouth Pinwheels for Prevention Garden. A blue pinwheel – a child’s simple toy – represents our efforts to engage the community in child abuse and neglect prevention.

By focusing on activities and policies that strengthen families, we can help make childhood a fond memory for all Portsmouth individuals. The 2018 Portsmouth Pinwheel Garden was dedicated on Monday, April 2 by Matthew James of the Virginia House of Delegates.  Thank you to everyone for supporting this initiative.
