Sexual Assault Awareness
Sexual violence is prevalent in our country, our state, our cities, and our communities - but it’s preventable. Every 98 seconds, a sexual assault occurs and every 8 minutes, that victim is a child. If you or a loved one has been a victim of sexual violence contact the police or the Glendale Family Advocacy Center at 623-930-3030.
Child Abuse Prevention
One in 10 children in the U.S. will be sexually abused before the age of 18. As adults, we are responsible for the wellbeing and protection of the children in our care. Over 90% of sexually abused children are abused by someone known by the child or family.
If you or anyone you know has suffered from Child Abuse, contact the Glendale Family Advocacy Center at (623)930-3030 or visit https://www.childhelp.org/
