Why Beyond Abuse is Needed

Child Intakes

67

Adult Victims Served

44

Emergency Dept. & Crisis Hotline Responses

The above figures are annual numbers for 2019. How would you characterize an “okay” level of sexual abuse in a community? We believe the only acceptable number is a declining one, and we are working to create a safer environment in our community to help us move beyond abuse.

Beyond Abuse is a Children’s Advocacy Center, or CAC.

What does it mean that we are a CAC? How do we help children who have been victims of sexual violence? This minute-long video helps explain how CACs help children recover after an incident where they have been preyed upon. Our team is proud to work together with law enforcement and healthcare professionals to provide important services to kids in the aftermath.

Advocacy Club

Beyond Abuse is pleased to recognize the contributions of members of our community through our new Advocacy Club.
