Child sexual abuse violates the trust, safety and age-appropriate development that should be a natural part of each child’s life. Even worse, this especially offensive crime is most commonly committed by adults known to the child, in fact, often by those very people entrusted with the child’s care.
Its frequency and deeply harmful impact make it one of our most heinous social problems with heartbreaking long-term costs and consequences for individuals, families and communities.
