Understanding the issues surrounding child sexual abuse
Abuse can affect families for generations. Svava and her daughter tell their story and offer hope to other survivors.
Peter has valuable insights about abuse prevention at your organization and explains why survivors file lawsuits.
Restore Hope thanks Andrew Cox of Fireside Media for his work on these impactful storytelling videos.
April is National Child Abuse Prevention month
Since 1983, April has been a time to acknowledge the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child abuse. The blue pinwheel is the national symbol that reminds us of the epidemic that plagues our communities.
In Oregon alone we find more than 10,000 children suffer child abuse and neglect each year. That number is the equivalent of 170 school buses full of children. That’s 170 buses too many.
In recognition of the collaboration needed to help prevent child abuse, we invite you read more about what steps we can all take to prevent and reduce child abuse and neglect.
We look forward to forming partnerships with friends and other agencies that work toward the same goal.
