Advocates United for Humanity welcomes their new #communitykidswatch program that promotes see something, say something -- Part 1!
AU4H ‘Community Kids Watch’ program is a simple act of kindness that anyone can take part in. The ‘Community Kids Watch’ program helps children in the community feel safe and protected knowing their families, friends, and community are attentively watching over them. Each person in their neighborhood, apartment complex, street, or community vows to take a stand to help stop child abuse by “watching, listening and reporting” any suspected abuse towards a child. Many people fear reporting suspected child abuse thinking if they are wrong they will be charged for filing a false report. There is no wrong in doing what you believe is right to protect a child. Making a report in good faith will not get you in any trouble. By reporting the suspected abuse you may save a child's life. Please don’t let another child die by not making the call if you suspect abuse.
WHO CAN BE INVOLVED?
Any community resident can be part of the Community Kids Watch Program and help keep an eye out for neighborhood children.
As a Community Kids Watch Ambassador:
1. You vow to protect children, All children.
2. If you see, hear or suspect a child is being abused or neglected it is your moral responsibility to report it. Reports can be filed anonymously with your state’s Child Abuse Hotline. If you are unsure of the process or need that information please contact AU4H at: firstname.lastname@example.org or message us via Facebook message system with a number you may be reached at and we can help guide you through the process.
3. If you file a report, you will be updated as allowed by law.
