April 2018 Give: Child Abuse Prevention Month

More than 30% of victims never disclose the experience to ANYONE. Almost 80% initially deny abuse or are tentative in disclosing. Approximately 75% disclose accidentally. More than 20% eventually recant even though the abuse occurred.

Dickerson Children’s Advocacy Center provides comprehensive assessment and treatment services to physically and sexually abused children ages 0-18 years throughout the Midlands of South Carolina.

They rely on the generosity of volunteers, businesses and the community to help these most vulnerable of victims.
