April 2018 Give: Child Abuse Prevention

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.

In recognition of National Child Abuse Prevention Month, we’re collecting items the center needs in order to continue their mission of hearing the voices and healing the hearts of child abuse victims.
