THE STORY:

MAMA BEAR EFFECT INC wrote -

The Mama Bear Effect was established in 2012 and incorporated in January 2013. We recognized that there was a lack of effective resources - online and printed for parents and advocates to raise awareness and educate themselves and others to best protect and empower children from the threat of sexual abuse, which has been estimated to affect 1:4 girls and 1:6 boys.

Many survivors do not disclose until years later, or sometimes - never. The silence surrounding this issue continues to put children and families at risk. Too many loving parents are not aware how severe the risk of sexual abuse is, nor are they educated in how to best protect their children. 

We have developed a comprehensive website with an age-by-age guide for parents, as well as body safety coloring pages, and informative blog posts breaking down the issues into more manageable conversations. 

Our printed brochures, including our Parent Packs are available for purchase as well as donation through our grant program for other nonprofits and school systems. 

In 2015 we trademarked the FIRST awareness ribbon specific to child sexual abuse, and we also launched the first national Tie One to End Child Abuse campaign in honor of April being Child Abuse Prevention Month.
