The host of Monday to Friday's "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) and Sunday's "Community Matters" This Week, the nationally respected public safety advocate Bill Murray, has a special mission: to address issues of child abuse. But his concerns and activism goes much deeper than that. Mr. Murray is best know as the founder of LA Community Policing, his reaction to the events of 9-11. Ever since early 2002 he's published its web site, at LACP.org, which encourages residents to engage in public safety, homeland security and in helping their neighbors reduce crime, the fear of crime and improve the quality of life. Originally a regional non profit effort, LA Community Policing's web site has grow to some 6000 pages, and long ago was identified by the US Dept of Justice as the world's largest grassroots non profit effort devoted to community-based policing. On January 1, 2011, the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse was launched (NAASCA.org), based on Bill's personal life experienced. "Very few adults have escaped many years of severe child abuse, trafficking, and kidnapping. But I have, and I've been in recovery from its devastating effects for nearly 30 years. Now that my parents are both gone I've decided to devote my remaining time, money and available energy to this vitally important cause." On Sundays join Bill, MJ Goyings, ER RN, and Carol D Levine, author / activist, on "Community Matters" This Week as they discuss the most recent events and news from the worlds of both public safety and child abuse. Monday to Friday the "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) show features frequent visits from special guests and episodes dedicated to important cultural and child abuse issues. All shows include LIVE chat rooms .. and call-in participation is always welcome!

Tonight's special guest is Jennifer Olivardes from Houston, Texas, an abuse survivor who's now an activist, mentor, speaker and author. She's the founder of Mending Wounded Hearts Corporation (MWHC), a faith-based, non-profit organization, created to assist victims of sexual and domestic abuse, empowering and uplifting the victim through the transition period from victim to survivor. "I have had a passion to help the hurt, [since I was] broken and abused my entire life," Jennifer says. "I speak at colleges, several different organizations and where ever I am called to." Jennifer certainly has a lot of experience to talk about. Childhood molestation by one of her uncles began for her at age 4, and it continued through her mid teenage years. By that time it included two uncles and two cousins. "At age 10 I began to have black outs mostly when I was in school," she says. "My vision would come back slowly, first black and white, then full color. Age 13, I tried to end my life. At age 14 I almost got raped by an ex boyfriend. At age 15 the physical abuse began, and it continued till I was 28." Her adult years weren't much better. Jennifer was involved in numerous bad relationships and marriages where she repeatedly experienced domestic violence. She's putting all that behind her now, explaining, "I am free from all abuse today and no one will ever hurt me like they did in my past! This is why I do what I do, and I will never ask for anything in return. My joy is in helping others, as I have had people do for me, and I will not be stopped!" She's currently writing her memoir, "Broken Angel," and a collection of poetry, "Silenced No More," both of which will be available after the third quarter of 2015.
