One in four girls and one in five boys will be sexually abused before they turn 18 years-old. Social service agencies receive more than 3 million referrals for child abuse and neglect each year.
Sexual abuse and the mistreatment of children may usually occur in secret, behind closed doors, but they have very public consequences. Victims, their families, and their communities pay a very high price decades after the violence ends.
Child USA cuts through the shame and the secrecy to gather and analyze the data behind abuse and neglect. Child USA presents this information to legislators and other policy makers so they can make decisions we believe will build a child-centered society that will help kids thrive – and hold adults who harm them accountable. Your donation will make that possible.
