Tonight's special guest is Daphne Young from Phoenix, Arizona, VP of Communications and Prevention Education at one of NAASCA's favorite non profit organizations, Childhelp, America's largest, longest running national nonprofit dedicated to the intervention, treatment and prevention of child abuse. She is the creator/researcher/writer of "Childhelp Speak Up Be Safe for Athletes" fighting abuse in youth athletics. Debuted in WA DC by Senators Jon Kyl and Dianne Feinstein, this lifesaving program is funded by Olympic consultants the Foundation for Global Sports Development. Chief among Childhelp's many meaningful services is an International child abuse HOTLINE at: 1-800-4-A-CHILD. Serving the United States, its territories, and Canada, the Hotline is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with professional crisis counselors who, through interpreters, can provide assistance in 170 languages. The Hotline offers crisis intervention, information, literature, and referrals to thousands of emergency, social service, and support resources. All calls are anonymous and confidential. The Hotline has received more than 2 million calls since it began in 1982. These calls come from children at risk for abuse, distressed parents and concerned individuals and is also a valuable resource for those who are mandated by law to report suspected abuse. For their many other services, see the web site at: www.Childhelp.org. NAASCA promotes the use of the 24 hr / 365 day International Childhelp HOTLINE regularly, including when we distribute our Blue Ribbons -- 1-800-4-A-CHILD
