That’s the estimate of how many children will be sexually abused before they turn 18. COVID-19 has changed so much about our world: from how we do our work to how we connect with loved ones. But abuse continues to happen, and in some circumstances, the risk is even greater with more kids staying home and having less contact with adults who may notice and report possible maltreatment.

A children's advocacy center is a child-focused, facility-based program in which representatives from many disciplines, including law enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health, medical, and victim advocacy, work together to conduct interviews and make team decisions about the investigation, treatment, management and prosecution of child abuse cases.
