Additional Information

April is Child Abuse Awareness Month.

In order to bring attention to the staggering number of cases of abuse reported in Wichita County last year, Patsy’s House Children’s Advocacy Center have placed 1,340 pinwheels at Patterson Honda at the corner of Jacksboro Highway and Central Freeway.  Each pinwheel represents one report of child abuse in Wichita County in 2010.

Patsy's House Children's Advocacy Center, Inc. helps seek healing and justice for abused children. Each time justice is achieved, the benefits are immeasurable – bringing hope and a brighter future for each child victim and for the community who opens its hearts to them.

A $20.00 gift to Patsy’s House will remove a pinwheel from the corner. The goal is to remove all the pinwheels during the month of April, and through this, help end the cycle of child abuse … one pinwheel at a time.
