Summertime is a great reminder of the carefree, fun and safe childhood we wish for all children.  Yet, we know that 1 in 10 children will be the victim of sexual abuse before their 18th birthday.  Despite this startling statistic, it's a silent epidemic that people are afraid to talk about. 

This means that whether you work with youth, are a parent,  or are simply a member of a community, it is highly likely that someone you know or care for has experienced, or is currently experiencing child sexual abuse. It's going to happen whether you are prepared to deal with it or not-unless you stop it!

The facts are shocking

To prevent abuse, we have to break through the stigma and shame, and talk about how the sexual abuse of children happens.  It's the only way we will be able to stop what is arguably the number one health crisis that children face today.

To stop child sexual abuse, we must understand it - -

NKYCAC offers the Stewards of Children curriculum in partnership with Darkness to LightStewards of Children is a revolutionary prevention program designed to teach adults to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.  It uses real people and real stories to show you how to protect children.  The framework of the training is built off the foundation of the 5 steps to Protecting ChildrenTM

Darkness to Light believes that adults are responsible for the safety of children and should be taking proactive steps to protect children from this significant risk.  It is unrealistic to think that a young child can take responsibility for fending off sexual advances by an adult.  Adults are the ones who need to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.  Yet, the statistics clearly show that adults aren't shouldering this responsibility.  We believe that adults want to, they just don't know how.  And the good news, it can be stopped.


It’s Really about the Kids.

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.
