Prevention of Child Abuse
Child abuse and neglect hurts more than our children and families, it hurts our entire community.
The most immediate victims are children and families. Children suffer physical and emotional injuries, and parents suffer remorse and regret. A greater problem develops as the cycle of violence impacts the community. Childhood abuse is a significant predictor for juvenile delinquency, early pregnancy, substance abuse, mental health issues, and adult criminal activity.
The prevention of child abuse became Exchange’s National Project in 1979, at the 61st National Convention.
