Most people think it will never happen to their child, but sexual abuse does not discriminate. In fact, individuals with disabilities are more vulnerable. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), children with disabilities are 2.9 times more likely to be victims of sexual violence. This is unacceptable to us, and is why we founded our organization.
Raising a child with a disability is already challenging, and abuse makes things so much harder.
Our family went through this.
We should have had access to support and services.
We felt the devastation.
We never want anyone else to feel that way.
We are committed to using our lived experience to make that a reality by providing:
- Preventative education to parents, children, medical professionals, and law enforcement
- Support, guidance, resources, and advocacy to victims and their families on their path to healing
