Supporting Survivors

This April, the Washington County District Attorney's Office is joining our community and law enforcement partners to honor Child Abuse Prevention Month, Sexual Assault Awareness Month and National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.

We’ve worked with our colleagues to develop a number of events throughout the month to show support for crime victims and to assure them that help is available. Please review our calendar to see all the events taking place during April.

Honoring Child Abuse Prevention Month

Join the Washington County Child Abuse MDT as leaders from the District Attorney’s Office, Sheriff’s Office, CARES NW, and the Family Justice Center plant a pinwheel garden to raise awareness of child abuse and neglect. This community event will take place at 1:00 pm. on April 20 on the courthouse lawn located at NE 2nd and Lincoln in downtown Hillsboro.

On April 26, 2022, an expert with CARES Northwest will conduct a child abuse training focused on preventing childhood neglect.
