Latest News

It’s no secret that child abuse is a big problem in our country, in our community – even in our own neighborhoods.  With one in ten children being sexually abused, physical  abuse and neglect occurring at even higher rates, and more than 100 billion dollars spent annually on the impact of abuse and neglect, it’s no wonder that we sometimes shake our heads – or bury our heads – and pretend we can’t do anything about it.

But here’s the thing – while we can’t solve it individually, we can solve it together.
