Thanks for All the Support So Far!
July 21, 2017
Hi Friends and Family, As many of you know, I work at a wonderful organization called Children's Bureau. We are dedicated to the prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect. I love going to work every day knowing that I am helping vulnerable children and their families thrive.
Did you know that there were more than 224,000 reports of child abuse and neglect in Los Angeles and Orange Counties in 2015 and over 33% of these children were under 5 years old? What's more, children living in poverty are more likely to be victims of abuse and neglect.
The good news... we know what the risk factors are that lead to abuse and neglect, which means we are able to help vulnerable families get the services and tools they need before that abuse ever happens. We do this through things like parent education classes, early childhood education, counseling, parent support groups and more.
That is where you come in. For every dollar donated to prevention services, a tax payer on average saves $4-7 in things like juvenile justice costs, social services costs, and more. Will you help me raise $1,000 to stop child abuse in in tracks?
