LUBBOCK, TX- Covenant Children’s is dedicating its resources to prevent child abuse in West Texas and eastern New Mexico.

April is National Child Abuse Prevention month. As the region’s only free-standing hospital for kid’s, Covenant Children’s is committed to doing our part in raising awareness of child abuse and neglect.

In 2022, there were 734 confirmed cases of child abuse in Lubbock County. Of those cases, two resulted in death.

“As a hospital, it is our job to take care of kids when they get sick or bump their heads,” Covenant Children’s CEO Dr. Amy Thompson said. “At Covenant Children’s, it is our mission to provide the best future and well-being for all kids, and that can’t happen if we allow our children to suffer from abuse and neglect. I am proud of our team and their efforts to educate the public and stop child abuse in our region.”

· Starting April 3, Covenant Children’s will light up our outdoor space blue each night. Thanks to support from the Covenant Health Foundation, Covenant Children’s will be illuminated with blue trees, lights, and walls. We encourage community members to stop by and take photos of the blue lights and post to social media using the #CovWearsBlue

· On Monday, April 10, we invite members of our community to join us for a ribbon tying ceremony honoring the victims of child abuse. We will read the story behind the blue ribbon and have a special blessing from Covenant Children’s leaders.

· On April 14, Covenant Children’s will hold their 10th Annual Child Abuse Conference. The virtual event is open to local professionals including teachers, nurses, social workers, etc. This year’s event focuses on prevention. Click here to register.

Covenant Children’s is a proud member of the South Plains Coalition for Child Abuse Awareness.
