There are three million reports of suspected child abuse or neglect in the United States every year. One in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused before age 18.
In Northern Kentucky, this means 25,000 children could be affected by this horrific crime and need support from Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center (NKYCAC), the only center of its kind in the region.
The NKYCAC offers services that respond to the concerns of child abuse in a child-focused environment, offering prevention, evaluation and treatment to children and families.
Reporting abuse is one of the most important steps you can take to protect children. If you believe a child is being abused or neglected, you must call the Child Protection Hot Line or your local police department. If the child is in immediate danger, CALL 911.
You can join us in the fight against child abuse and help children to a safe childhood. The Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center is a nonprofit organization.

Scottish Rite Masons Helping Children Communicate - In the early 1950s in Colorado, the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry of the Southern Jurisdiction of the United States initiated a program to help children with speech and language disorders. The results obtained from this program led to the establishment of RiteCare clinics to provide diagnostic evaluation and treatment of speech and language disorders, as well as learning disabilities.
Today, there are 178 RiteCare® clinics, centers, and special programs operating or planned for children and therapists located throughout the United States. Each facility is staffed by speech-language pathologists or other trained personnel. Through the support of Scottish Rite members, these clinics, centers, and programs continue to increase. The value of this philanthropy has long been apparent. Tens of thousands of youngsters across the United States have been helped significantly. With the good work of dedicated clinicians and parents, the Scottish Rite has achieved successes that could only be imagined a few years back. Children who might have remained educationally behind for a lifetime can now talk, read, and lead productive lives.
