It’s easy to feel hopeless when faced with the statistics of child abuse. In the U.S., each year more than 600,000 children are abused. In Pennsylvania, there were 58 child-abuse fatalities and 136 near fatalities in 2021. In Erie County, nearly 300 children are referred to the CAC each year; over the last four years, about 62% of children referred to the CAC were possible victims of sexual abuse.
But, with the support of generous community members, the CAC is here to help the children.
With your donation, you will benefit a child who needs aid right now at a child-friendly place where they can tell their stories, one time to one person. With your contribution, you will help parents and caregivers learn about positive parenting through the ACT: Raising Safe Kids program.
If you are able to make a gift today, we thank you on behalf of the children we serve.
