“It is important to know that we expect child abuse cases to increase the longer that this pandemic lasts," says Doug Staley, Executive Director of the Child Protection Center. "Nationally, child abuse spiked during the recession of 2008-2009. We want to try to avoid repeating this. The coronavirus has placed the most vulnerable children of our community at greater risk than ever.”  The danger of children being placed in risky situations increases every daythe health crisis persists. Families are facing mounting stress, financial uncertainty, unemployment, and health concerns, while children spend their entire days in the home and without access to their schools or other safe places. It is VITAL that we continue to serve these children who so desperately need us. We ask you to aid us in this mission. Follow our social medias and like, comment, and share our posts. If you are in a position to make a donation, we would greatly appreciate your partnership. A gift of any size can change the life of a child. Together, we can make a difference for these children when they need it the most.
