“Abuse is a crime of isolation. Children are alone at home isolated and not being able to be seen by anybody else that might be able to recognize concerns.”
– Dr. Jamye Coffman, Cook Children’s Center for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect
Children in abusive homes have been living through this pandemic in a crisis.
And while some restrictions are being lifted, children in dangerous situations are still cut off from their support networks. Most schools won’t reopen this year, and a child in an abusive home is facing a summer with no camp, no Little League, no escape from her abuser.
Imagine if you had the chance to shield that child from abuse?
For just $2 today, you can protect a child by ensuring the trusted adult in their life can recognize child abuse through a webcam. Your gift will be doubled (because of a generous gift from a private foundation) – that means you’ll be protecting twice as many children.
Please, make a secure gift today to ensure the workshops we already have scheduled in June are fully funded – you can help ensure 1,500 children have an extra set of caring eyes on them.
Yes, I want my gift to be doubled and protect a child in crisis.
