Call in to speak with the host
Tonight's special guest is Daphne Young from Scottsdale, Arizona, for over 10 years the Vice President of Communications and Prevention Education, Childhelp, Inc. Daphne came from a brutal domestic violence household and there have been lingering effects. But today, as the Chief Communications Officer of Childhelp, she has the honor of giving a voice to children who have been silenced by abuse and neglect. 'Childhelp' is a wonderful organization that we are delighted to feature once again. Among their most important tools is the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline at (1-800) 4-A-Child or (1-800) 422-4453, which runs 24 hours a day and is answered by trauma informed staff. NAASCA uses their service on our Blue Ribbon cards to promote a place to call in suspicious behaviour. Across America, Childhelp is helping shape communities devoted to protecting children and strengthening families, and is proud to find so much support here for its mission. Founded in the 1950s, Childhelp remains true to its vision today. At Childhelp, the goal is to meet the physical, emotional, educational, and spiritual needs of abused, neglected and at-risk children. Childhelp programs and services help children from any situation and let them experience the life they deserve: one filled with love. In 1979, through the encouragement and hard work of co-founders Sara O’Meara and Yvonne Fedderson, President Jimmy Carter designated April as National Child Abuse Prevention Month. We still celebrate it today. The internationally respected nonprofit is the largest organization dedicated to helping victims of child abuse and neglect as well as at-risk children.
