Child Abuse: Know the Signs and Stop the Violence Against Children

Every 10 seconds in America, someone reports to the authorities that they believe a child is being abused. That's a staggering amount — and yet the professionals who help these children believe the actual incidence of abuse and neglect in our country is three times higher than what's reported. Take a stand: Learn the signs of child abuse and neglect. Find out how to make a report. And discover the ways you can volunteer with and donate to the organizations that help the children who cannot help themselves. When you help to save a child, you do more than save that child today. You save the future.

Did you know that everyday, 559 kids are kidnapped in America by a family member? The emotional, psychological, and physical impact on children makes family abduction a serious form of child endangerment. Knowing the risk factors involved is the first step to preventing family abduction in your community.

Take our quiz to get informed about this hidden crime and take action today to help keep more kids safe nationwide.
