Children’s Advocacy Centers (CACs) help child victims of sexual abuse every day of the year.

Last year 15,735 kids in Pennsylvania came to a CAC because of suspected child abuse

75% of those cases involved alleged sexual abuse

Over half of child victims were age 13 or younger

We know first-hand the hard reality that in 9 out of 10 cases the abuser is someone the child knows and trusts. 

We also know that child sexual abuse IS preventable, and as a parent or caregiver, YOU are the first line of defense. Talking to your kids about bodies, boundaries, and behaviors is one of the most important conversations you can have. We want to help you get comfortable having these conversations—here’s a simple way for you to get started today.

Books are a great way to keep the conversation going, so you don’t have to do ALL the talking.
