• Over 1600 children die annually as victims of child abuse.

  • Most were under the age of 3.

  • Most were victims of neglect.

  • Most were boys.

  • Most deaths were caused by family members.

  • 6 million children become NEW victims of abuse annually.

  • Two-thirds of those in drug treatment reported being abused as a child.

  • 80% of the prison population were once in foster care.

  • Within one year of aging out of foster care 66% will be homeless, in jail or die.

Surely with the faith community stepping in we can turn things around for abused children.

 

If every church did a little we could see big results in the battle against child abuse.
