In 2016, we served 1,092 child victims of abuse and neglect. In the last ten years, the number of children seen at the Child Advocacy Center has increased by 78%.
51% of the children we see at the Child Advocacy Center are alleging sexual abuse.
74% of the children seen are under the age of 12.
98% of the child victims know their alleged abuser; the abuser is not a stranger.
72% of the time the alleged abuser is a family member.
The sad fact is that for every one child we see at the Child Advocacy Center, there are nine more children who suffer in silence…too afraid to tell.
