Sexual abuse happens in ALL types of families, from the very poorest to the wealthiest and most powerful. What they all have in common is that the child was powerless. And that there were adults in the child’s life who knew or suspected that abuse was happening – but did nothing. Be the one to change that. Get educated about child abuse and take action when you see it. We can help.
