Monday to Friday's "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) feature trauma informed HOSTs and Co-hosts and respected child abuse prevention, intervention and recovery advocates. They're all volunteers members of the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA), a 501(c)3. Founded in 2009, NAASCA.org was originally a grassroots effort. It was launched based on our founder Bill Murray's personal life experienced. Bill wrote, "Very few adults escape years of severe childhood sexual abuse, pre-pubescent X-rated photography, sex trafficking, and a two week long kidnapping." He continued. "But I have, and for some 35 years I've been in recovery from its devastating effects." After years of operating as a grassroots effort, NAASCA became a public charity in 2015 .. a 501(c)3 .. but we receive no grants or outside support, and belong to no other organization. There are no dues or fees. Our MISSION is entirely self-sustaining through the volunteer contributions of our members. The single purpose is to address issues related to childhood abuse and trauma including sexual assault, violent or physical abuse, emotional traumas and neglect from two specific perspectives: 1) educating the public, and 2) offering hope for healing and services to adult survivors. There are now nearly 3000 BlogTalkRadio shows, podcasts in the ever-growing library. Join us five-nights-a-week (Mon to Fri), at 8pm EST (so 7pm CEN, 6pm MTN, 5pm PAC) for solution-oriented discussions about the many issues of child abuse and trauma. The shows always include panel discussions and call-in participation.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Tonight's special guests are Rachel Hawley and Eli Yoder from the Amish Rescue Mission. Rachel grew up in Southern Minnesota. The Amish community where she was raised was so sheltered that she didn't even know there were any other Amish. She still has a lot of unanswered questions. In 2020 a little 12 year old Amish girl got pregnant in Missouri, by one of her 4 brothers. Rachel said, "Okay God, I am listening. Where do I start?" Inspired by the Holy Spirit, she created a 'safe touch~not safe touch' poster for the Amish and Plain children, took advocacy training and became the Co-Founder of Amish Rescue Mission in hopes to give all God's children a voice. Eli Yoder grew up in a old order Amish community in Kenton, Ohio, where he experienced lots of physical abuse. "I wanted to run away at a very young age and I failed at every attempt of escape until 18 years when I could legally leave by law." He continues, "I thought for sure that I would go to hell but I wanted to get away from the abuse so badly that I thought hell might be just a little bit better." In 2017 he first laid his eyes on the English written Bible, and realized he'd been lied to his whole life. "After being out for 15 years I got to know many other former Amish on social media including Rachel." He'd discovered a path. "I knew that I had to be a part of helping victims who don't have a voice in these Amish communities." The Mission now has many different tools including safe houses, Dutch speaking interpreters and many other resources. The group has recently added a hotline -- 888 / 621-1985 -- and safe houses for those in need of rescue from current abusive situation.
