“Child abuse casts a shadow the length of a lifetime.” - Henry Ward
In the United States, someone reports child abuse every 10 seconds. Four children die each day because of abuse and neglect. Children who become victims of abuse and neglect can suffer not only when they're young, but carry the physical, emotional, and psychological scars from abuse throughout their lifetime.
As the nation's largest victim services agency, Safe Horizon offers programs and services that address child abuse, by raising awareness and providing direct services to child victims. We can give children their chance to heal and recover from abuse, and to regain the safer, brighter futures they deserve.
