Mission: To bring awareness to our nation's households and communities concerning sexual abuse against children. To open up the ears of adults that they may hear the cry of our children.

We are dedicated to the education, prevention and support of children and their families who have been victimized by sexual assault against a child. Sexual assault against children is not a new discovery in our society. The ealiest reported case dates back to 1642 in Massachusetts.  It is a subject that has been hidden behind the closed doors of our homes, churches, schools, etc. In this 21st century one would think that this topic would get at least as much exposure as Gay Rights, Breast Cancer and Domestic Violence, yet there is little said about the abuse against our nation's children. they have to say and pay attention to the signs that things may be occuring right under their nose. It is our responsibility to protect our children. We can educate our children on how to protect themselves against strangers, but how do we educate them against people they trust, especially those who claim to love them?

Fact:1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused by their eighteenth birthday. Only 1 in 10 will tell. A recent study of 116 confirmed cases of abuse where a child disclosed, showed that 74% of the time it was an accidental disclosure. This means that the abuse was discovered not by the child coming forth with the information, but by third parties observing unusual behaviors or symptoms. This information is based on reported cases. The number of unreported cases is unknown. (Dallas Children's Advocacy Center)

Let's join forces and help prevent these assaults against our children. Let us embrass those  children and adults that are healing from the abuse that they have already encountered.
