In partnership with Bivona Child Advocacy Center, we are working to educate adults in our community about child sexual abuse and provide them with the tools they need to both recognize the signs and prevent it from happening.
The statistics speak for themselves. One of every four girls and one of every six boys is sexually abused before their 18th birthday. Only 1 out of 10 children who are sexually abused will tell someone. Some never disclose.
This initiative gets people talking about the problem and provides a confidential resource to help them determine what, if anything needs to be done.
Catalyst is our pro bono partner on this campaign. Other partners on this campaign include Monroe County Child Protective Services, and area school districts. Learn more at www.bebraveforkids.org.
