Project Overview

Child abuse and child sexual abuse are not topics anyone likes to talk about. However, the reality is these things do happen to our children, right here in our community.  Greene County has one of the highest rates of child abuse and neglect in the state.

The Victim Center receives an average of 11 disclosures of child abuse per month as a direct result of our prevention program.

Prevention is key!

The National Committee for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse estimates that one in every three females and one in every five males will be sexually abused before they reach the age of seventeen. Many of these children will never tell anyone what happened to them, often as a result of threats or manipulation by the perpetrator.  

Just $4.00 provides important Prevention Education to one child. 

Our Prevention Education program helps keep kids safe by:

Empowering them with the knowledge and tools to understand boundaries.

Helping them identify safe adults.

And the most important rule of all - tell a safe adult until someone believes them.

We ask you to help us, help keep kids safe.
