Child XXX Abuse

October is Child Abuse Prevention Month in the province of Ontario and the Childrens Aid Society is running a campaign to bring awareness to this important issue.   They do good work and help thousands of children each year.  This is a large problem and they cover abuse in all it’s ugly forms.  We support their efforts.

Voicefound is focused on the topic of sexual abuse of children.  Adults are the ones who need to DO something to help PREVENT childhood sexual abuse and yet few know how.  Voicefound offers a program to educate concerned adults in the community so that they can proactively identify and respond appropriately to this epidemic.  The ‘Stewards of Children‘ program provides adults with tools, knowledge and a personal action plan .  We choose to inspire others to take responsibility and act on behalf of all children.

Let’s have a conversation.  Let’s talk about what’s really going on.  This is child abuse.  Child SEX abuse.  And there is something you can DO!
