Abuse can happen anywhere. Together, we can stop it.
In the past few weeks, you've read and heard about the trial of Larry Nassar for serial sexual abuse of children. You were no doubt moved by the courageous young survivors who gave powerful impact statements at his sentencing and added their voices to the roar that's been rising for months. In this #metoo moment, there's no doubt we're in the midst of societal change.
For over 20 years, the Children's Advocacy Center of Suffolk County has been committed to preventing and responding to abuse in our community by:
Being experts on child sexual abuse. We know how abuse happens, how to prevent it, and how to support victims and families in our community.
Providing sexual abuse training and consultation for youth-serving organizations. We work with agencies and community groups throughout Suffolk County to increase safety.
Equipping parents, caregivers and professionals through trainings and resources on intervening before concerning behaviors become abuse. We also help adults learn to recognize signs that abuse has occurred and how to respond.
You can help end child sexual abuse in our community.
