Illuminate Colorado is a united network of four established organizations partnering to build brighter childhoods through education, advocacy, and family support. Governed by a single Board of Directors, agency programs are fully integrated to leverage resources and increase overall capacity to implement powerful programs to keep kids safe. Through effective programming, consistent messaging and a collective voice, together we are making a difference for our children across the state of Colorado.
Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign
By its very nature, the pinwheel connotes whimsy and childlike notions - it has come to serve as a reminder of the safe, stable, and nurturing childhoods we want for all children. It is the national symbol for child abuse prevention. The pinwheel is an uplifting reminder of childhood and the bright futures all children deserve.
All across Colorado, people are planting pinwheel gardens to serve as an uplifting reminder of childhood and the bright futures all children deserve.
