Violence against children with disabilities is a global epidemic. Based on the general statistics of the World Health Organization (WHO), children with disabilities are 2.9 times more likely to be victims of sexual abuse than children without disabilities. Often, parents do not realize the abuse is happening. Many times, the perpetrator is the child’s primary care source, a family member or someone the family or child knows. This is unacceptable! Education, advocacy and awareness are imperative for children with disabilities, to reduce the risk and impact of abuse. Our educational and training programs will provide information critical for reducing the risk of sexual abuse for children with disabilities. *** Our educational and training programs are co-written by parents, professionals, law enforcement and survivors.
Often, children with disabilities do not realize the abuse is happening to them. Many times, the perpetrator is the child’s primary care source, a family member or someone the family or child knows. Perpetrators many times threaten children so they are afraid to tell anyone. This allows the abuse to continue and as a result, the child more than likely will suffer from extensive trauma. Education and advocacy are imperative for children with disabilities, to reduce the risk and impact of abuse. Our educational and training programs will teach children with disabilities to identify sexual abuse by providing knowledge of boundaries, body safety, safe and unsafe touching and establishing their safe circle. In addition, what to do if they have been abused and who to tell. *** Our educational and training programs are co-written by parents, professionals, law enforcement and survivors.

"We were so glad Voices of Change 2018 decided to partner with us last year. They bring critical niche expertise and understanding that cannot be found anywhere else, and when needed, can mean the world for a victim and their family. Very recently we were approached by someone needing help because of an incident involving sexual abuse and we were able to quickly link them up with VOC2018 so they could get the help, advice, and understanding they need. What VOC2018 is able to offer for victims and their family members is priceless."
Over the past year, I have had the privilege of working with Voices of Change 2018 and have been thoroughly impressed with the passion and commitment of the leadership. The organization is primed for great things and I am excited to be able to work closely with them in all their endeavors!
Two amazing women that will stand beside those that need the extra support and carry those that feel defeated.
This is an organization with the intellect, vision, passion and drive to make real change for individuals with disabilities. Driven by personal experience, and seeing the many gaps in support for both victims and professionals, they are making much needed stride in bringing about much needed change! True leaders.
Nicole and Maci are true advocates! They have an immense passion for helping victims and will make a difference. I have witnessed, first hand, their drive and commitment to fight for victims and what is right. They will be the Voice of Change!

I love everything this organization stands for! Just by speaking to Nicole, you can hear the passion in her voice — This momma & organization will stop at nothing to make sure that, not only her voice is heard, but that our children's’ voices are heard, as well! As a speech-language pathologist, working with children with special needs daily, I can say, The Voices Of Change 2018 has opened my eyes to a whole new world! A new world which will begin in my therapy room, as I continue to help children with communication deficits communicate their wants & NEEDS. Thank you, Voices of Change!! Keep up the amazing work you do to bring advocacy to such a controversial topic!
I love ❤️ everything about what Nicole and Maci are doing to bring awareness and provide support regarding sexual abuse!
