An estimated 1 in 7 children have experienced abuse and neglect in the past year in the U.S.
1 in 4 girls and 1 in 5 boys will be sexually assaulted before their 18th birthday. Together we can change these statistics to zero!
Join us through the month of April as we bring attention to the crisis of child abuse and neglect in our own community as well as around the world.
