Sept 25, 2017 – Beau Biden Foundation Cocktail Reception and Silent Auction

WITH YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT BEAU’S DREAM WILL LIVE ON

The Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children was established in June 2015 as an operating non-profit to continue Beau Biden’s commitment to protecting the most vulnerable among us, especially children who have fallen victim to abuse and neglect. We believe that no child should be threatened by a predator—either an adult or a peer. We believe that child abuse can be prevented through effectively educating adults and children, developing the next generation of child welfare professionals and strengthening child protection laws around the country.

Over the last two years, we’ve trained nearly 2,500 adults in Stewards of Children®, the most effective child sexual abuse prevention program in the country. We’ve spoken to over 9,000 adults and children about Internet safety and cyberbullying. Most importantly, we’ve formed new partnerships in Delaware, Pennsylvania and New York, ensuring that Beau’s commitment to protecting children continues—and grows.
