In 2017, we served 1,210 child victims of abuse and neglect. In the last ten years, the number of children seen at the Child Advocacy Center has increased by 116%.
73% of the children seen are under the age of 12.
99% of the child victims know their alleged abuser; the abuser is not a stranger.
73% 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.
